Pink and white


Alice is the most cautious rabbit we've ever had.  She doesn't love us yet, but she's feeling more at home here.  When she first arrived, we would let her out to roam the front of the shop for the day, but getting her to go home was a challenge.  Lately, we've simply put her evening meal in her house and she easily goes in to eat.  We close her up, open up Petal's house and let him out for the night.

The last time we attempted bonding the two of them, Petals went back to his house and fell asleep for the afternoon.  Bonding is stressfull and he is pretty old:  nine years.  So, I'm taking him out to Littleton Hospital for a check up this month to make sure his heart is strong enough to deal with the stress.  Also, he's never been checked by a Vet.  He's been the healthiest of all the bunnies we've had, but now, it's time to get a sense of how he's doing.  I think he'd probably be just as happy as a single guy for the rest of his life, but it would be nice for Alice to have a pal.

Alice is also moulting.  Gone is the fat sleek rabbit who first arrived.  Now she has raggedy fur that gives her a quirky look which is  irrisistable.  I love this photo of her: she looks a bit wild.

The wedding this weekend is yellow.  We have a few big birthdays this week, so I chose pink anemone and sweet pea to go with the last of the  Jame's Pillow peonies.





Yellow wedding photos coming up next.

That picture of Alice is adorable. And I love your floor. I am sorry to hear Petals is having a hard time, sad to think think of a stressed out rabbit!

Pink sweetpeas--so pretty! I look forward to the yellow wedding pictures--I'm starting to get into yellow flowers.

Alice looks ready to ask you a question..

Like what's up with petals.

Almost as hard being a rabbit as being a human,huh?

Looks to me like Alice has been up to something -sort of like all over bed head!

All over bed head! That IS what she looks like - so very sweet! And those flowers are stunning - that almost antique looking anemone is pretty special. Only 4 more months until peony time here!

Alice couldn't distract me from your flower photos which I must say are amazing. Someone has been practicing and it shows. Lovely!

Alice sort of looks as if she's saying "Stop papparazzi, I'm gonna get you" and I agree with Jen I love your floor.

I love that arrangement, it is a stunner.

Your Alice is like our Hamish - lovely to look at, but requires delicate negotiation at all times!

I'd love to walk into a flower shop and find a roaming white rabbit.
