A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood

Unlike many of the places on the east coast of North America that have had major snowstorms, around here it's been unusually snowstorm-free and temperate around 0C (32F). I went into the woods to see if there was any bunny action. Check out the size of the snowshoe hare's back feet. As long as my own hand!

My bunny drive-in has been seeing lots of action. You can see two beds (melted oval shapes where the bunnies bedded down), lots of green still left for them to munch on and even a toilet to the left of their bedrooms.

Here's more bunny action. They've been digging around the base of the trees and pulling out pine cones to chow on.

Meanwhile the frozen stream has become a critter highway -- I guess it's pretty easy to get around on.

Richard and I went sliding on the rest of the river. What fun.

Only five more weeks till spring.

We also have a few of the little guys hopping around here. A bit closer though, they are coming right up on our back walkway (droppings all around), which is pretty close to our burning bush bushes and nine barks. I'm sure they are getting in a few nibbles while they venture up to use the bathroom:)

Some day I'll show you a home video George & I made when we lived in Hudson. It's all about spring and rabbits. We called it 'Looking For Mr Goodbunny'
Your shots are inspiring, waiting to be translated into one of your snow-shadow paintings.

Last picture. Very nice. Makes me long for a snowy winter...NOT.

A beautiful day! Love those giant bunny feet.

Echoing Knatolee who - so to speak - sent me here. Here, in Germany, an unusual strong and long winter seems slowly drawing to a close.
