Breeding English Angora and Holland Lops is one of my recent hobbies. These cute balls of fluff are photographic subjects that pair well with grandchildren. The bird bath in the secret garden is a favorite spot to snap pictures of these babies. Several years ago, this bird bath was designated as the Bunny Bakery by several of “the cousins”. Now, our fenced garden is not only a secret garden, but is the Bunny Bakery Garden.
A typical Bunny Bakery business activity would be to open the lid to the bakery, place bunnies inside and feed them rose petals. The kids also made up a Bunny Bakery song that consists of the words bunny bakery sung to the tune of “Follow the Yellow Brick Road”. The kids sing the song as they parade into the garden, and at other opportune moments.
The current litter of baby Angora’s is small enough to crawl in and out of the bakery. These babies are a few days out from going to new homes, so it’s time to take some bunny cuteness photos for my records. The Bunny Bakery is my go to spot!
The current group of bunnies traveled with mama and this cousin to Texas when they were 7-10 days old. Husband is a patient man. It’s one of 3 or 4 times we’ve traveled to Texas with bunnies in tow. Cousins got to witness these little eyes opening for the first time, and put their heads together to name each bun. Word got out that baby bunnies were in town and several families stopped by to see the current attraction. As a result, two of these buns (and a baby Holland) will be traveling back to Texas to new homes.
I have a couple video’s posted of this group of babies on my With Endless Grace channel. If you would like to see these buns (at two weeks old) chase mama around for breakfast, visit this link. The second video is of this group (at six weeks old) vying for their spot at the feeder (with an unexpected surprise).
As you prepare for and celebrate Easter this week, take extra time to reflect on our risen Savior. God’s love, His tremendous sacrifice, and victory over death gives us hope and an opportunity to spend eternity with Him. It is reason to rejoice and proclaim, “He is risen!”
