This little brass bunny candle holder has been a part of our lives for decades (about 20 years now). When our girls were young, they joined 4-H and raised bunnies for their projects. One day that 1st year, we saw this cutie at a garden store, and nothing would do until we acquired it for our new patio. She has graced our gardens ever since and has seen so many changes. My, the stories she could tell....porch remodelings, chats of children, hurricanes and tornadoes, births of 4-H bunnies and their deaths, badmitten games, neighbor boys tp-ing the yard, small little girls growing into women, birthday parties, a puppy being toilet trained, dear and coyote visits, hayrides, bonfires, apple harvests, quiet visits of humming birds and bees and butterflies, trees and roses being planted, garden fences being erected, Halloween parties, swing sets being built and torn down, first kisses, fist fights, family arguments, family embraces and family reunions, and she was there watching the auctioning off of many of our belongs, and folks viewing our home when it was being sold. She moved with us and saw more sights....rabid racoons, theives, bald eagles chasing down small pets, snakes and all sorts of bugs from the swamps nearby....Oh yes, the stories she could tell.
Well, I hope you liked my little journey around the garden this week. It's still quite warm here with the temps in the 90s, but the days are getting much shorter. The leaves are beginning to fall, and the dogwoods are turning from shades of greens to golds. Autumn will be here soon. I hope you're enjoying what's left of the summer, though.
Until next time.....God Bless.
