We are 'making do' with two washed and frisky
Schipperkes plus a new batch of baby bunnies at

Spring is a springin'
Bunnytown shed many ways of winter this weekend. Old things removed including the bunny trophies which were gladly taken home by neighborhood kids. Much removed, thinned out, and cleaned. What was to be the bunny railroad was dismantled and secured into high rise buildings or at least if you squint and look at them askew you get the idea of a metropolis on the rise. The bunnies as usual respond to changes acrimoniously.
Ostara - Spring Equinox
The exact arrival of spring is marked by the Spring Equinox, the date when
day and night are equal lengths. Depending on the year and time zones, this
equinox falls between March 20 and 23.
German pagans named the Spring Equinox after Ostara, their goddess of
spring, fertility, and rebirth. In England, among the Anglo-Saxon tribes, Ostara
was known as Eostre. The modern holiday of Easter is derived from the name
"Eostre" and the associated myths. According to these myths, Eostre was a
playful goddess whose reign over the earth began in the spring when the Sun
King journeyed across the sky in his chariot, bringing the end of winter.
Ostara came down to earth then, appearing as a beautiful maiden with a
basket of bright colorful eggs. Ostara's magical companion was a rabbit who
accompanied her as she brought new life to dying plants and flowers by
hiding the eggs in the fields.

Tonight it rains in the high desert of New Mexico.
Rain is a good thing at BunnytownUSA. The rabbits enjoy it and, in the desert, the smell of rain is amazingly delightful. The bunnies are glad for a bath with Mother Nature. We should all be so glad.
Two rabbits given to neighborhhood kids have been caught and returned by other neighborhhood kids . Apparently letting BunnytownUSA bunnies loose in your back yard without proper supervision with lack of fundage for a cage is a bad thing. The bunny rescuers were rewarded with an ice cold Coke.

There is sadness in Bunnytown tonight. But sadness is not really what it is. It is more, a sense of loss. There will be more food now for the rest of us. More room to explore. More things to learn.
Change is a constant at BunnytownUSA.
Tonight...several adult and teenage bunnies found new homes. I learned that adult rabbits do not like to be put into paper bags.
Thank the powers for hydrogen peroxide. BunnytownUSA is fairly well known in our little mixed culture neighborhood in Albuquerque. Rabbits are certainly tasty meat! But all of our adopted rabbits go to homes that need the warmth of soft furry friends.
