Handsome Lucian sends you our Easter greetings from the bunny world.

It’s a rare year when Easter and Passover are celebrated on the same weekend. But it’s nice to think that as we usher in spring after a long, cold winter that families will be getting together and if they’re lucky – eating some good-quality, fair trade, organic dark chocolate! Where ever you find yourself this weekend, have a lovely holiday.

A different perspective…

lucianfootFor Lucian, it’s no big deal if you put your foot in your mouth. In fact, it’s just another day in the life of a rabbit. No regrets, no worries.

Our lives could be so straightforward and uncomplicated…if we would only take a moment to embrace a different perspective on things, we’d see issues in a whole new light!

An Easter to Remember

In Animal Kingdom on April 21, 2014 at 5:20 pm

LucianEaster2It was a gorgeous day this Easter Monday, perfectly warm and sunny, as little Lucian ventured outside in the garden for the first time. He scampered cautiously over the flagstone paths and what’s left of the grass after a long, cold winter — initially curious but all the time enjoying the fragrant air and sun on his fur.

All was well and good before he got tangled in the boxwood surrounding the parterre and panicked. Within a flash of his Houdini-like contortions, he was almost out of his harness, and filled with fear in those ensuing moments the entire family struggled to unhook him. If Gaetan hadn’t managed to scoop him up, who knows what might have become of him.

Later once he was brought inside, he needed to lie down – almost like a dog, laying on his side panting heavily and heart racing from the excitement. Luckily, he soon managed to calm down and was safe and sound after his rather exciting Easter adventure.

Fading Glory

In In the Garden on August 30, 2013 at 11:48 am

Where did summer go? With the hot and humid days almost behind us, I can finally get back to our neglected garden. The weeds have taken over and everything is overgrown. Time to get back to the routine and do a big fall sweep.

While the riot of blooms are behind us, we still have the autumn joy and mums to look forward to. In the meantime, we’re enjoying our lush sanctuary amid the loud chorus of cicadas, while dodging random clouds of insects, and watching the live entertainment provided by bird and squirrel antics and the latest garden bunny who dines nightly by the stone birdbath.
