OSWALD, GENTLEMAN RABBIT AND THE WALLED GARDEN

Oswald paused  outside the Walled Garden.  The gate was open.  That in it self was unusual.  The Walled Garden was a safe haven for rabbits.  Those who would do them harm could not enter.    For the first time  in  rabbits memory changes had taken place in the Walled Garden.

Lawns had been replaced with flowers.  Great drifts of flowers hummed with the music of bees.  The most fragrant, pollen-laden flowers had been planted.

Rabbits everywhere in the world above had joined in this cause to bring back  the bees.  They knew without bees the world  could not exist.

Vacant city lots,  boulevards,  country ditches,  abandoned farms ,  the rabbits planted flowers.    Those who lived in The World Above  planted along highways and byways .  Proudly posting signs  like  “this stretch of highway planted by Mabel and Tom Smithers”.

Oswald, gentleman rabbit ,  quietly  watched as the world took  up the rabbits cause.     The meeting with the gardeners of Girveny was a success.   Perhaps, he thought, we rabbits  have indeed  pulled bees out of a hat.
