Lost Bunny Seeks Love and Affection
I went down into the Wildwood to see the bluebells when they were at their best a few weeks ago and decided to take some pictures so I set up my camera on the tripod and got down amongst them when all at once this beautiful bunny came lolloping into the frame
And we have a Mexican stand off! It suddenly becomes too tense and they both scamper off together, I am now worried! This is no wood savvy wild rabbit but some ones pet, and how long can he survive in the Wildwood?
I now start knocking on neighbors doors to see if I can find the owner but Leo’s owner comes around with his two little girls, by this time my daughter and her two children have arrived, off we all went to the woods 4 adults 4 children with nets and blankets determined to save Bigwig from the wild animals that frequent the woods, he was there OK but gave us the slip every time! up and down the paths he ran having a great time, but we still had not located his owner. Reluctantly we gave up but a few days later another neighbor knocked on the door claiming him so I showed her into the woods saying I didn’t have much hope of his survival but guess what there he was bright eyed and bushy tailed
just asking to play that chase me game again, well this time I did manage to grab him and once tucked under my arm he was as still and quiet as he could be but my neighbor said ‘that’s not my rabbit!’ Well how many tame rabbits can be living in the Wildwood, but as she had an empty hutch we popped him in it and made lots of flyers to say we had found him so his lovely little face adorns all the notice boards, shop windows and schools in the area, to date he has not been claimed but I will keep you informed in the mean time he has a lovely cozy hutch and a large grassy run.
come and walk with me in the Wildwood again soon, the wild orchids will be flowering shortly.
In the meantime I have just come back form the usual painting holiday in Spain so watch out for tails from the mountains of the Sierra Almijara in Andalucia!
Love to you all
