Our house decorating stalled by colds, which have
also left us house bound I was reduced to watching  nature
out my window. As is often the case a White-Tailed Jackrabbit
rested under the spruce. It decided to give us a hand with
the spring cleanup. The pictures taken thru our window seem a
bit fuzzy I still need to get my camera looked at.


“Every spirit builds itself a house; and beyond its house, a world;
and beyond its world a heaven. Know then, that the world exists
for you: build, therefore, your own world.”

                                                                         Emerson
 

"For all men live by truth and stand in need of expression"

                                  The Poet
                                           Emerson


"The Universe is the externalization of the soul"

                               The Poet
                                        Emerson


"But man postpones or remembers; he does not live
in the present, but with reverted eye laments the past,
or, heedless of the riches that surround him,
stands on tiptoe to foresee the future. He cannot be
happy and strong until he too lives with nature in
the present, above time."

Wonderful series! Beautiful rabbit!

Thanks Wanda

I know you have a soft spot for members of the Leporidae.

Hi Sandy

It would be strange to go a whole day without seeing one here and 4 or 5 on a 20 minute walk would not be unusual. They do add some life and interest to our neighbourhood.

All the best.

Hi Julie

They are beautiful animals and they really mark the seasons with their dramatic colour changes.

Thanks for stopping.

Hi Kathie

Happy Easter to you and your family.
