Outside early this morning

One thing for sure, I've simply got to get back to blogging, or give up! Lately my thinking has been that maybe somebody has put a curse on Poppy and me and our place out here in the country. Do you reckon that's possible? Do you believe there are people with the power to do that...put a curse on someone? Like maybe a neighbor with a voodoo doll?  :) I suppose I'm kidding. 



This was like 6:15 a.m. this morning out feeding the animals. The sun just coming up, shining through the tree tops and deer watching me from the hill above the pond.



The deer grew in number as they made their way around the pond.



This is the wild azalea I dug from the woods in 1990 and have waited every year for it to bloom. It has two blooms.



I love it!



It's mighty quiet here. Eli is away for the day getting a much needed bath and hair cut. He was such a mess, and his hair long and dry and knotted. He loves playing in the goat lot, but comes inside with hay and pine needles tangled in his fur. Can't wait to see him all clean and smelling good! 

Guess what's new here on the teeny tiny farm...



I found her on Craigslist. Her name is Fiona. She is sweet and gentle.



Oh, and Bun Bun is just beside himself.  We have sectioned off the bunny play pen and added another "Popeye" looking house (I will take pictures). They both can run and play and get to know each other through the fence.

You may wonder what happened to the little orange bunny named Punkin. She went back to live with all the other bunnies on the little farm where she was born. For some unknown reason, she would bite. Even when reaching in to feed her, she would bite. Being part angora like Bun Bun, I knew there was no way I could handle another bunny with matted fur that could not be groomed. 

If Bun Bun and Fiona have babies, what do you think they will look like? Bunnies are adorable, don't you think?

Thank you for the comments on my last post. I will get ahead again one of these days. I love your comments and enjoy replying to each one. 


Love,
Henny

  2. Okay, so you are apparently aware what will happen if you have a boy bunny and a girl bunny . . . .
    That last picture is my favorite.

  3. What an adorable bunny Fiona is. Perfect friend for BunBun.
    Too bad about Punkin but luckily you could take her back.
    Why do you think you're having bad luck? Is your back not getting better? I hope you're okay.

    1. Oh, my back is getting better and I am very thankful. My husband and I joke about a neighbor having put a curse on us and if there was ever anybody who could do it, it would be her. Plus, she is mad at us for disagreeing with her about letting hunters come down our path to run their dogs and shoot deer. We are against it. She wants it! :)

  6. Hi Henny! I'm trying to figure out what would make you think you are cursed? Your blog is full of happy things and beautiful pictures and lovely animals. this new black and white bunny is so cute ...is she a dutch rabbit? I love the floppy ears on bun bun too and his beautiful fur. You keep yourself busy, with all your pets. Hope your back is still feeling good! Peace to you!

    1. Thank you Diane. I should not have said such a thing. We've had some strange things happen lately. I'm not sure what kind of bunny Fiona is. She is pretty.

    1. Oh my, I have heard that. That's why I sectioned off the lot, so the bunnies won't be together all the time.

  10. Welcome Fiona! How bun to have all those animals but I would have a hard time keeping up to them all! I am sure Eli will be beautiful with his new haircut! At least until he goes outside! Nancy

    1. Hey Melanie! Eli really really got a hair cut yesterday. I was totally surprised. He is still beautiful but cut much shorter than I was expecting. His hair will grow back fast though with all the knots and tangles are gone. I like the name Mandy!

  14. Yes, bunnies are cute!
    The deer are pretty. I hope your back is good today, Henny.

  15. Your last photo entry was THE gem! But I truly enjoyed all the sights.
    Don't beat yourself up about blogging frequency. It's supposed to be fun! To be honest, there was a blog I was highly interested in, but she posted too often and I couldn't keep up.

  16. Henny Penny, you are so blessed -not cursed! We would all love to get up and have your life, looking at deer and bun buns and of course, lots of work to care for them. I know I would love it! But off I go to my office job which is dull and humdrum at best, but a job nonetheless. I love your blog just for plain old wishful thinking some days! Hope you are better.. XO Terry

  17. I love your last photo. Wow!
    Baby bunnies, oh yes, we had two sets of baby bunnies a couple of years ago. My boys loved it. We were able to give all the bunnies away to good homes. We still have mom, dad and kept one baby for us.

  19. I love the last photo, with Mrs (or Mr) Duck out for a morning stroll! Your new bunny is a cutie and will be easy to take care of with her shorter fur.
    I can't wait to see Eli's "after" picture.

  20. Ah...such a nice visit to your sweet little farm. It looks so very peaceful there. Fiona (love the name) is a beautiful girl. When my boys were little, they had a couple of dutch bunnies like her. I hope you are having a great week!

  21. I love rabbits! I have an angora rabbit and I spin and knit with her fur :) Here are some photos of her, she looks pretty strange! http://laurengunningcrafts.blogspot.co.uk/2016/04/mossy.html
