Happy Easter!

Happy Easter Everyone!
I hope your day was wonderful.
Look who has found a home in our backyard.
It's a cute newborn baby bunny.
I did see his mother and she left when we had
our home pressure cleaned a few weeks ago.
He's safe and has been hiding out under our back deck.
Have a wonderful week!

Oh Melissa, how precious. One year when my children were small I looked out the window and there was a white bunny in the back yard. The children were so excited, they were sure the Easter Bunny had really come. He was a neighbor's pet and we found the owner and got him returned. Such fun. May you and your family have a very Blessed and Happy Easter. Hugs, Marty

Happy Easter, Melissa! That baby bunny is so adorable!! We had a bunny family in my mom's yard when I lived at home and I was able to get one of the bunnies to eat a carrot out of my hand. It was so adorable!

I hope you and your family had a blessed day! :)

I hope you had a wonderful Easter. Baby bunnies are adorable. But, keep an eye on the rabbits. They can do a real number on your plants and new trees at this time of the year.
Hugs, Terrie

Happy Easter Melissa! That bunny is adorable. We always have them all over our backyard too -- last year I got video (on Easter!!) of two playing with each other -- adorable!
I never noticed the pic of the front of your house -- I love those stepstones!

Sandi@ My Yellow Door said...

Hi Melissa,
What an adorable baby bunny! What a treat it would be to see him in your backyard. Hope you had a lovely Easter.


Connie said...

What a cutie !
I have a family living outside my back patio and they come right up to the sliding glass door. Not afraid at all.
When they get bored, or hungry they chew my neighbors flowers, which are lovely. Mine are not quite up to snuff yet.
Hope your day was special
-- I'm sure you made it so.

C Maisy said...

Hi Melissa~

Hope you had a very special Easter, too! What a sweet bunny...did he leave you any goodies? :)

Chari said...

Hello Dearheart...

Just read the sweet note that you left on my Blue Monday post...thank you, Sweetie!!!

Girl, I can't believe you have your very own baby bunny living in your back sweet!!! He's just sooooo cute, isn't he? Awwww!!! My daughter Aimee just sent me photos of their pet bunnies, they have 3! If they weren't so much to care for, I'd consider getting know how I love bunnies!!! I mentioned something about it to Russell the other day and he wasn't fond of the idea! hehe!!!

So glad that you had a nice Easter! What do you have goin this week? We were cleaning over at Russell's dad's place again this past weekend and I have about 6 more boxes of family treasures that I need to clean up and find places for. I imagine this will keep me busy most of the week..hehe!!! So happy to hear from you today, take care!!!

Love ya,

Always Pretty in Pink said...

Aww. That's so cute. I hope he stays.

When I was sixteen, someone gave me a pet rabbit. But it was so bad. And he never wanted to be petted or anything. He ended up having to live outside, we still fed him and all though. But he dug a real burrow by my mom's garden. It was so cute. He was a much better outside pet.

Lynette said...

Hey Melissa - I am still very busy at work. You may remember that Kristen and I worked together - well - she took another job on March 30 and was doing some clean up to her computer before she left and accidentally deleted her blog in the process and hasn't had time to re-create it!! We had lunch yesterday and she is trying to get the hang of her new duties and I'm trying to keep her and my job going. Not sure that we are going to be able to fill her job - we work for the State and with the budget crunch - we have had to suspend everything!!

I miss everyone but not sure when I'll see the light at the end of this tunnel!!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

That's a sweet little bunny Melissa! I hope you had a very happy Easter.

Baby bunnies are so sweet! I hope you enjoyed your Easter.

ann said...

oh Melissa,the REAL Easter bunny came to see very sweet.i had a baby rabbit when i was young.My Dad found him in a pipe.for the life of me i cannot remember what happened to him.i don't think he died!
i have a story for you.A Roo story.Over the wk-end i was in the kitchen and depending on which room we are in,Roo and i do different things.(it depends on the chairs,his long nails).
i was holding him and rocking him.yes,I rock him.ha.see if you can imagine this,ok?he lays his little head on my left shoudler.i wrap my right arm behind his huge drumsticks.i hold his little head with my right hand.his feet with those long nails dangle.have you got the picture?
well,i have rocked him since he was a baby.he always fights sleep because he is a rooster,right?he has a barnyard(house)to keep varments out of,right?he is always on watch...............
my son and i were chatting away and it had been 15-20 min.all of a sudden Roo jumped straight up as he does when he is really scared.feet,claws,wings went everywhere.he screeched this awful noise.
i was so shocked............i just kinda sat son said ."what in the world got into him?"i had no clue.he had never done that before.
later i figured it out.Roo,our fearlesss protector,i do believe had drifted off to sleep.haha
and when he woke,he was startled,he didn't know "where"he was.
then he was ashamed of himself.the rest of the evening he was like a little ghost.kinda in the background.HE WAS ASHAMED.
hope you enjoyed the ya...ann

9it depends on the chairs)

prof en retraite said...

Oh how sweet, Melissa! It sounds like he's found a safe place...but...has Mr. Chestnut seen the little darling? I'm afraid he would not last long at my house if Isabella could get to him...she's my huntress!! Fortunately, they stay indoors!! I hope you had a great Easter!!...hugs...Debbie

Ginger said...

The little bunny is adorable.
When you say you had your home pressure cleaned, are you talking about the outside? Sorry, don't mean to be dumb.

The Blonde Duck said...

I'm glad you left the bunny some carrots! I'm sure he found them quite tasty.

niartist said...

Hey Melissa! Sorry you had a run-in with her too, (I assume). Feel free to email me whenever.
