Down the window well

This time of year there always seems to be a lot of nature abounding in the backyard. Tonight the Professor roused me outside to see our latest event. A baby bunny had fallen into the window well, and was scratching at the window to alert someone to it's predicament.


After a blog photo op, a lot of head scratching, garage searching for butterfly nets or the like, and then a quick decision to open the window from the inside and coax the "wabbit" into a paper bag {by now outfitted with string on the handles}, said fluff ball was out and deposited in the garden.


Lippity lop, lippity lop
Here comes a bunny hippity hop
With ears so tall and tail so small
Lippity, lippity lop
He sits up straight and wriggles his nose
At every sound he hears
Then scampers away as fast as he can
And suddenly disappears
Oh , Lippety lop, lippety lop
Here comes a bunny hippity hop
With ears so tall and tail so small
Lippity, lippity lop.

  2. Ooohhhhhhh. I love bunnies; I've always wanted one (wouldn't Tippi love THAT). Your new friend looks so soft and sweet. I wonder if it'll be back?

  4. Ma soeur,
    What a delightful wee visitor. "Lippity Lop" from The High Road of Song. The tune will be with me all day.

  5. We once had "E.Cottontail" running around our apartment in Chapel Hill, courtesy of either Pi or Finnigan - we'll never know which one. He was rescued by the local wildlife rehabilitation center. It was very dramatic.

  6. We, too, have a bunny that visits our backyard regularly. All I have to say is "bunny fufu" and Karamel comes running to chase him away.
