Seriously more bunnies?!?! I've now stitched four of the five bunnies charted in this collection. They are all adorable.

Here's what I'm up against lately. 
Solomon is extremely interested in the Backyard Bunnies. 

Bunnies and daisies

Pretty adorable even as they court certain death danger venturing ever closer to the patio and the cats.  

At least the chipmunks have 'high-tailed' in lately and are staying away from the patio.

My latest tallies have the population at six. 

And include to gray squirrels in the mix.

Our hot weather () has subsided so I plan to get outside and work planting up my 9 flats of plants. The painters are finally done with the exterior of the house so I can finally arrange things on the front porch and back patio. I was all done with this stage of garden last year at this time.  How do I know that? Well...

Reflecting and Remembering
If you've been following my blog for a while, you may remember that one year ago today my Mom and I landed at London's Heathrow airport to begin our three month stay abroad.  I am still amazed at all the things we were able to see and do during our time there.  I am going to use the one year anniversary as an excuse to relive our "Excellent Adventure" and post a link each day to once again follow our perambulations. Here's today's link as our adventure began.

Can Solomon really take out a big rabbit?

I never get tired of seeing your bunny finishes, Beth (or your photos of real-live bunnies!)... Very cute finish :)

Margaret said...

Ah the bunnies! The chipmunks and squirrels too! Love your finish! I still think of your UK adventure as the best vicarious journey I've ever been on! Loved it!

That little flower bunny you are stitching is so pretty. I also remember your summer adventure. It was so much fun. I looked forward to reading the blog every day to see just what you and your Mom were doing on that particular day. I will enjoy taking a look back.

Holy crap, it's been a year since your trip. That is stunning to me. Geez. That seems like just a few months ago in a lot of ways. I still think about all the photos you posted while you were there. :)
