We had an unusual visitor today. There are lots of rabbits out in the wood but they never venture into our garden. When it snowed I went out a little way into the wood, only a few yards and there were bunny prints everywhere but none at all in our garden. The snow is good for providing evidence like that. Anyway today there was a lovely flopsy bunny in our garden pootling about as bunnies do. We were so pleased to see him and were watching him out of the window saying things like "Ah isn't he cute", well I was anyway. Suddenly Rosie came into view, running at full speed with wings a-flapping, charging like a bull at the poor bunny. Naturally upon seeing the chooky apparition bearing down on him he turned and ran for cover. Rosie of course looked very pleased with herself and strutted about like a conquering hero clucking her head off. Obviously she didn't want bunnies in her garden!
The reason for Rosie's stroppy mood could have been the weather. It was foul this morning, absolutely teaming with rain. I had to don full waterproofs to go out there and let them out, feed them and poo pick the house. Not a pretty sight at 7am I can tell you. They were all very put out when I let them out. They poked their heads out very tentatively, peering about as if there was something really wrong with their world. You would think they had never seen rain before! Then they came down the ladder making scolding clucks as if it was all my fault and they were telling me off. They were definitely not amused!
