The journal quilt for this week commemorates our grandchildren's weekend "sleep over." A cute rabbit that my neighbor Sarah spotted eating her lettuce, eggplant and cucumber leaves, stayed around to meet Hannah and Erika. David, only one, was not here to see the rabbit before and after breakfast pancakes. The children stood quietly as bunny munched away. Bunny was not afraid. All was quiet.
The children left out a carrot which disappeared and I frequently saw him under my flowers inside our fence. He seems too little to be out alone. Farley, our dog, spotted him much earlier, we now realize, and regularly checks sites where sighted. Leaves are still disappearing but bunny is more circumspect. I have not spotted him today. Just checked. Neighbor Lloyd has put a cello playing frog in his garden as a scarecrow. I do hope the dots call up cottontails rather than snow and I find a carrot appropriate to the quilt.
