This was how the start of any month began...saying White Rabbits three times before you said anything else. Also, saying 'Hares, Hares Hares' as the last thing the night before.
I have written before about this and have no idea why we do this.
But this January was a little different...
...we seem to have been adopted by a giant white bunny!
We thought it belonged to our neighbours. No. The neighbour the other side had 2 rabbits during the summer; one she kept, until it was old enough to leave, for the family down the road and the other one she gave to her next door neighbour. But they were both white and smooth-haired. This one has brindle patches and a really cute furry 'ruff'.
He has a burrow under our swing chair and has eaten my primroses and rose bush leaves. He likes to be fed a lettuce leaf but doesn't like carrots. He is very fond of my leek leaves too!
And s/he is big, a right solid old bunny.
Rene is really not sure...
