Baby bunnies in bird bath terrarium

The Bunny Bakery Garden

Breeding English Angora and Holland Lops is one of my current 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.

 

Baby bunnies get loved on at the bakery.

The Bunny Bakery opened five years ago for business.

 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 girls learn what to feed the bunnies and proceed to do so.

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!

Sweet bunny faces and one puffy little tail pause in and outside of the terrarium dubbed The Bunny Bakery.

These bunnies  like to climb on each other and love to explore. Two meet face to face under the bakery while another looks on.

Five years pass far too quickly. The Bunny Bakery is still in business and grandkids still like to love on those bunnies!

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!”

    More cuteness you have captured with those beautiful bunnies! Soon, some of them will be at a new home, and know you will miss them! Happy Easter blessings to you!

      Thank you for the sweet blessing. Yes, you are right that I will miss these little buns. I’m thankful that four are finding homes with friends that are crazy about them and keep me updated with photographs and details. One came to visit during piano lessons yesterday, so that was a treat. The cuteness factor went up several notches when the babies started dropping their ears these past few weeks. It looks like all of them will have daddy’s lop ears. 🙂

    I didn’t know you bred bunnies! Delightful! Flowers, bunnies, blue skies…all reminders of new life and beginnings in Christ. Happy Easter, dear friend
