Of course, the ground hogs and the rabbits leave the poisonous rhubarb leaves alone. I did see one rabbit lying under these umbrella-like leaves enjoying the stained-glass effect when the sun shines through. Or that's what I liked to imagine he was doing. I wouldn't mind tucking in there for an afternoon.
This is the mommy or daddy rabbit who is quite accustomed to humans. I think he signalled the younger ones to "high-tail" it out of there while he hung out as the decoy because two ran off as I approached. It is 4:30 p.m. - supper hour. They come out at this time almost every day to graze on clover they find in the grass. I had some lettuce in my hand, so that may be why he hung around a little longer than the rest. Dads spot these kind of things. :)
Below are chives mixed with edible pansies which always add a certain "je ne sais quoi "
sprinkled over a salad or strategically place on a plate. And my favorite nasturtiums with tarragon behind. They, too, look pretty on a plate and have a peppery, radish-like taste.
. And here is bunny's all time favorite - leafy lettuce!
That's it folks. A few photos are all I can manage for today. I have a wicked sore throat that hurts even when not swallowing and am heading back to bed. Guess I should have been eating more of my vitamin-filled greens!
