Spring Gardening with Bunnies

Finally a bit of warm weather. The last few days have been lovely (it will probably rain tomorrow now I’ve said that). The 240 crocuses plus a few snowdrops we planted last autumn before returfing are putting on a good show.

Gypsy assisted with tidying up outside by trying to eat the stray bits of hay whilst we swept up. Why is it that bits of hay that have been totally ignored for ages suddenly becomes a must have piece as soon as you go anywhere near them with a  dustpan?


Scamp was equally helpful inside whilst I planted seeds. I’ve sown over 200 in the last couple of days, a mix of veg and flowers.

Is any one else enjoying a bit of spring gardening? If you’re feeling a bit green fingered (and are in the uk), the BBC are offering free vegetable seeds again this year: BBC Dig In.

    what a lovely spring fest! Gypsy is a beauty! Is she friends with Scamp?
    and nice to see Scamp helping with the seed planting. Thank you for the link, have sent off for some seeds.
    I actually found some amazing ‘meadow hay’ in my local Sainsbury’s – by bob martin I think, in big fat fluffed up bags. It was so fresh and sweet smelling! First time I have ever seen this product on their shelves!

      You should see Gypsy on a windy day. She gets a lovely ‘wind swept’ ‘do. Scamp and Gypsy tolerate each other, mostly. I think Scamp, being handreared, is a bit lacking in social skills and Gypsy tends to think there is much more interesting things to do than pay attention to a bun with no manors. I let them explore together sometimes but separate them when they start winding each other up eg flying kicks over the other buns head. There is also the issue of Gypsy preferring outdoors and me not trusting Scamp without at least two doors between him and exploring the rest of the world.

    As soon as I start sweeping at the hay with my little whisk broom it is the best thing to eat ever. We aren’t in the UK, far from it, if you know what I mean, but gardening has started! Yes, I agree with CGP Gypsy’s hear style is really quite adorable. And I am always taken by Scamp’s long slender legs.
