When we revisited the lovely Bellevue Botanical Gardens with Mom and Dad Sparks this summer, there were some excellent new elements to enjoy throughout the park. As always, the plantings were bursting with color and perfume and native beauty, but in addition there was a handsome new educational and administrative building complex in the entrance of the place, a splendid new suspension footbridge spanned the ravine in the most thoroughly naturalized section of the gardens, and the progress in that segment toward fuller removal of the invasive plants is more impressive than ever.
One new addition we enjoyed on this visit to the Botanical Gardens was not listed anywhere in the visitors’ pamphlets, as far as I could see, but no less delightful, welcome, natural and local: a pert little wild rabbit who sat nibbling the grass next to the biggest flowerbed in the middle of that pretty afternoon. Never let it be said that there’s nothing new under the sun.
Somehow a bunny always completes a garden picture
Absolutely true. Here’s ‘hopping’ you see your own soon. 😀
Beautiful photograph…well caught:) Hope that Mercer is OK.xx
It was so thoughtful of the little rabbit to pose for quite so long, especially out in the open like that. Thankfully, we had a long, clear lawn between us, so Bunny could feel safe and Old Shaky Hands could take my time about focusing at that distance! 😉
PS—Now that Mercer is finally started on medication, we’re all hoping there will be some relief for him quickly. 🙂
Oh how lovely! I want a bunny and a squirrel and a giraffe.
Have a beautiful weekend dear Kath. Sending you love and hugs from a beautiful warm SA.

I could manage to find you a sweet bunny or two, and umpteen good fat squirrels, in our neighborhood, but I’m afraid the giraffes are mighty hard to come by outside of a preserve or zoo in Texas. 😉
Much love and many hugs back to you, and may you have a glorious week!
What an amazing photograph!
Wasn’t that sweet, the little creature sitting so patiently for its portrait in the midday sun?? 🙂
That rabbit needs a better agent. 😉
Ahhh, don’t we all. 🙂
