For the second year in a row, a mother rabbit has used Julie’s backyard as a nursery. She has a few plantings of decorative grasses and the rabbit made a nest in one of them for her litter. She must have liked it as that’s the same place she prepared for her babies last year.

And just like last year, her dogs alerted Julie to the presence of the little ones. As a precaution, the dogs are no longer allowed out there until the kits are grown and finished with the yard.
She and her daughters go out there every day to check up on them and see how they’re growing, and they sure do grow quickly! It was my privilege to see them Wednesday, and now you’ve seen them too. Lovely, aren’t they?
My mom was in the hospital emergency department early this year. Happily, she is reasonably well and hasn’t been back since!
In addition to the air hookups, the call button cable, and all the other miscellany behind each bed, there is a small dry-erase board, presumably for the nurses to make notes for themselves or the nurse on the next shift. Below is the dry-erase board from the unoccupied bed opposite my Mom’s. I kept looking at it because I found it very moving. I hope the subject got well and went home.
