Where IS Everybunneh?!

Hello dearies,

Here we are at the end of July and...we haven't posted anything in WEEKS?!  *Sigh*  Too much life has gotten in the way, I'm afraid.  That, and an "on again/off again" relationship with our internet provider has made for some very poor communication on our parts!

However, there's been a great deal of this going on....

"Nope.  Not coming out, mom.  Nuh-uh."

And an awful lot of this....

"Ahhhhh.  Now THIS is the life."

Pretty much summertime in a nutshell.  More to come, soooooooooon - we PROMISE!  Until then dearies, be well and stay cool, every bun!

Spider-Bun and Twinkle-In-A-Box!

Hello, Dearies!

Isn't it annoying when your bunnies (or other fur babies) do something awesome, silly, laughable and you DON'T have a camera to capture it?!  It so happens that I've been a lucky ducky lately, and actually DID have my camera on me for a few photo ops with the girls who were caught having a grand time or two.  

For instance, I happened upon Cookie the other morning as she was...umm...well...making like Spider-Man and "hanging out":

It was a lucky image to capture 'cause when she spotted me, she immediately did the, "Oh my!  How'd I EVER get up HERE?!" and quickly leapt down.

And then, there is Twinkle Toes, who absolutely adores her gigantic supermarket cardboard boxes.  She first did the basic explore-a-box-hop to begin with, but a few days later, she was in full on WRESTLE-BOX-A-MANIA mode!  And here's the proof:

These lil' buns sure knows how to have fun!  Thanks to my girls for keeping me smiling!

Container Gardening Progress & Cookie Om Nom Nom(ming)!

Howdy there, dearies!  

I know it's been another long stretch since my last posting.  But today I come baring images of my sweet little container/salad bowl garden project!  It's been quite an enjoyable learning experience - who knew I had green thumbs?   Not me!!  *points at self*

In this image:  1) the dark pot contains my zucchini, 2) the terra-cotta pot next to it is green bell pepper and Thumbelina carrots, and 3) on the raised white planter holder is 1 of 3 yummy salad bowl gardens.  Also in the mix (which you can't see), Patio tomato, snap peas, Kentucky Pole beans and 2 container herb gardens.
Salad bowl garden close up, a combo of Red Chard and alfresco salad blends.
The cucumber buds!  And, in the 2nd pic, I found my first cucumber the other morning, too.
Do I see a strawberry or 12?!  Oh YES I do!

And last but not least, we have an appearance by the one, the only....COOKIES AND CREAM!!!!

Om nom nom nom NOM!!!  My lil' bun loves her delicious homegrown salads, same as her mamma.  Hope you enjoy this as much as I have, dearies!  

Until next time!

It's The Dog Days of Spring!

Hello dearies!  It's been a spell since the last post, but I've got reasons!  I swear!


Well, most of my reasons are related to either...

a)  researching & trying to register/enroll in stuff
b)  gardening with all my Super Powers 
c)  frolicking with bunnies & doggies (umm, not together)
d)  reading my eyes raw
e)  all of the above 

Correct answer is....*JEOPARDY THEME PLAYS*..."E, All of the above"!

So, when the above isn't happening, then I'm trying to get this guy out of MY chair....

Pilot, deepest sleep EVER. I can have a nap.  Yeah, right.  Good luck with THAT.  Ladies and gents and buns, the Dog Days of Spring are here!!!!

My (Not So) Secret Garden

Well, I went and did it.  I got myself into some full on container "salad bowl" gardening!  Over a 4 day stretch, I traveled around town pricing everything from pots to potting mix and ended up with a sweet little collection of herbs and veggies that left me AND the buns anxious for the harvest.  

Soon enough, little ones.  Soon enough.  *wipes away drool*

Here's a looksee at The Master Plan, with a small cameo by the one and only...



Couple things I forgot to mention in the vid:  1) Sugar Snap Peas! - YUM!, 2)  Kentucky Wonder bean poles - YES!, and 3) Lavender Haze - great for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds.

Let's hope my 'green thumb' sticks and these beauties live for the harvest.  *bites lip*

More pics/vids to come!

FlatBonnie - Is She Really THAT Flat?!

A few days ago, a fellow bun blogger posted about a cute little Etsy shop called FlatBonnie where one can find - amongst other things - sweet bunny plush creations (my Lord!  Check out the "Ooopsie, Poopsie" set!), and/or even have a custom plush made to spec.

Megan (originator of the post), had a plush made of her own bun, Maddy.  Check her blog out HERE.

TOO CUTE, right?!

I loved Megan's blog, checked out FlatBonnie's Etsy shop (loved it too), then clicked over to FlatBonnie's website which is HERE, and....

Fell.  In love.  With this:

***FYI:  Adopt a FlatBonnie in the month of May and 20% of the sale will go to the rescue organization of your choice!***
