The rabbit report...

I suppose some of you are wondering about the new baby. I am glad to report so far so good. This is the little rabbit's second full day under my care and he seems to be surviving. I am afraid to say too much, I don't want to get my hopes up only to come in and find it passed on. I have not even tried to decide if it is a boy or girl. I have discovered it seems to eat best if I wait at least 3 1/2 hour between feedings. You would not believe how strong the little babe is--just wouldn't imagine how it can reject being fed if it don't want to be. I actually think it is beginning to associate my voice with feeding. I really don't know if that is possible, but I honestly think it.

Other than that, I didn't know what I was going to post tonight...then I remembered these that I took the other day. They sort of caught my breath when I took their picture...the first two are from the tracks...the railroad runs a block from our home. I take Shelby, our collie mix dog over there for her walks. Don't let the second one fool you--it is a seed and is maybe the size of a dime. I think it is the seed of an elm tree. The second two are more of my dogwood--notice the color change from a few days ago. It actually goes from that dusky pink to an almost bright pink.
And the last picture is a flowering bush of a neighbors--I don't know what it is but I like it.

Again, I remind you to click pictures to enlarge...I am always amazed at the difference. Also, I wondered if they all enlarge for everyone. They do when I click on them, but some blogs I go to, when I click on the pictures, not all enlarge. And you can tell they are supposed to be clickable...the cursor becomes the 'little hand' when placed over the pictures. But clicking on them still gets no result so I have really wondered do all of mine enlarge.
