Winter Bunnies “Mosaic Monday”

‘I’m a Little Bunny’

(Sung to the Tune: I’m a Little Teapot)

I’m a little bunny soft and sweet
Here are my ears and here are my feet
When I’m in the garden, I look for treats
And nibble on all I like to eat.

My girlfriend, Pat sends me paper dolls every year as part of my birthday gift. She makes them and they aren’t paper…they are wooden!

I’m joining Mary at the dear little red house

for Mosaic Monday.

We see a lot of squirrels in the winter but not as many bunnies. Where do you think they go?

Oh my, those are beyond precious!

They are so cute and so much personality. We live in the country and have a family of rabbits that live in our yard. I think they eat the cracked corn that we put out for the birds. They are very approachable; they let us come within 6-8 ft from them.

I love those bunnies! Where does she get them? Does she make them? Those are the cutest! This is my first visit so I read your previous post too about Annie Oakley. I was a cowgirl too! I used to "ride" the arms of the sofa on Saturday mornings when the Westerns were on and I had a cowgirl outfit and was always playing cowboys and indians with my friends. I hated to take my chaps off at night! LOL!

Adorable bunnies! I'm wondering how the wooden clothes stay on the wooden bunny.

Adorable....

And as for the squirrels I know where they go. They all ended up in White Rock planting peanuts into my planters, and destroying my plants.
