ONE BUNNY THE SIZE OF A LITTLE MOUSE sat on our back patio. He hopped, skipped and jumped toward the hosta bed and nosed in. Later I saw his little face peeking out. He looked like an elf in the leaves. The next time I looked out, there were two little elves peering from the hosta cover. The mother rabbit was nowhere in sight and I wondered how she'd let these two little creatures out alone to face the dangers of the world. The bunnies nestled together in the greenery until dark. I wondered if it was their new home. If I parted the leaves, would I find small green beds, white coverlets and hanging blue coats? Like the cozy room in the Peter Rabbit book. I'll just keep it in my imgination.
