Flopsy, Mopsy, Peter or Benjamin?



This past weekend seemed to have a "bunny" theme.

On Saturday my "tough guy" son left to go mow grass at the family cemetery and was only gone about ten minutes when I heard him burst in saying, "Mama, have you ever seen a baby rabbit like this?". In he came with this cute little fellow.

As he was mowing,he had been surprised by four little sets of eyes and ears in front of the lawn mower in a little hole. I held the little guy for just a minute and sent him back to put the bunny back with the others.

Then yesterday we watched the movie "Miss Potter", which I got from the library. It was about Beatrix Potter, who of course wrote the best selling children's stories of all time, such as those about Peter Cottontail, Jemima Puddle duck, Benjamin Bunny and more. I liked this movie very much and it reminded me somewhat of the "Anne of Green Gables" style of movie.



This little bunny didn't seem afraid at all, but riding on the lawnmower in the hands of a "giant", must have had his little heart thumping! I think Beatrix Potter could have written a new story about the day Peter was whisked away by the lawnmower guy and then returned safely to his brothers and sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Benjamin.

Oh, sweetest! We get bun-buns around here sometimes, but I always have to keep my eyes open because of our cats! Shadow the dog...he'd probably want to play with them. But the cats, well...they ARE predators. If we see them 'stalking' we always yell out the door so the 'stalkee' (be it bird, squirrel or bunny) has a chance to scoot!

I also loved the movie Miss Potter.

The bunny sure is cute. I'm sure the bunny had a story to tell when he got back home! :)

That is so cute. What a nice story!

Oh, how cute! We've got a lot of those around these parts as well. I rescued a big one from a cat who couldn't get between the fence. I had no idea that a bunny had a scream! He was stuck half way through the fence with a big yellow cat scratching off chunks of hair from its backside.

I loved that movie. :)
