There is nothing more wonderful then curling up in bed with a good book. And when your bed is outside surrounded by quiet green fields this is my idea of paradise. I plundered the linen cupboard for everything French. I wanted this to be a place where I could escape for just a while. A place of calmness. A place where I could put aside for a brief time the uncertain realities of our present world. I wasn’t expecting to find a rabbit who thought my bed was the perfect place for an afternoon nap.
We have a relationship with the rabbits. Their burrow is under a large cedar hedge . Through the years the hedge has grown in size and now it is very close to the patio. It is not unusual to see small bunnies noses pressed against the patio door looking into our home.
We love rabbit watching. We have a rabbit who walks on his hind legs eating the tops of high grass. Another rabbit who eats only clover and ignores grass completely. Then there is the rabbit who likes to curl up in a basket beside by my outdoor bed. I have marvellous and rather esoteric conversations with him. His name is Oswald, and he quite famous in the rabbit community. I write about him in A GLASS OF WINE AND CONVERSATIONS WITH A GENTLEMAN RABBIT.
This will be a summer of drifting through the days reading about exotic far away places. There’s always pleasant work in the vegetable garden. A place we also share with a tiny bunny. Not by choice, but bunnies will be bunnies. And I am hoping Oswald rabbit will join me on the patio again this summer. A glass of wine and his take on world events would be most interesting. Take care and be safe dear friends.
