Celebrating Spring!

The rabbit is getting the best of me...and the broccoli and the kohlrabi..so I will turn my attention to floral pursuits and more signs of spring..

The Bleeding Heart is one of my all time favorites, and I swear it wasn't there yesterday!

Six or seven little groups of violets popping up in the lawn....there is something so pure about violets.
The pansies are thriving in a warm sun...
The purple is down right velvety, I can't stop looking at it.
Next week this patch will be in bloom.

A now for a true sign of spring...horse babies!!

A brand new colt.

Funny little blue eyed guy.



Tuckered out, sleeping at Mama's feet.

Now back to the rascally rabbits...open to suggestion as to how to stay chemical free and REPEL rabbits at the same time.

The babies are so cute...I can't stop watching them! The filly got named Glitter, the colt is Lucky. I think two more are expected.
