Apple Branches

It’s probably the wrong time of year for pruning, but we missed at the end of last year so the apple tree is rather overgrown. I’ve whipped off a few branches and used them to decorate Scamp’s corner.



Doesn’t it look nicer with a bit of greenery! Of course it won’t stay that way for long. The question is, which leaf to eat first. Scamp gave quite a few a good sniff before selecting which to eat.

This leaf first?

Or this leaf?

And the out take, what a dopey face. Possibly it’s rabbit for this is very tasty (what do you mean don’t talk with my mouth full).

Sorry for the gap in posts. Scamp had his VHD jab at the beginning of May but there was a muddle up and he got the Cylap version of the vaccine and had a bad reaction to it. Poor chap had big sores running down his side and under his chest, which resulted in several vet trips some antibiotics and metacam. He sulked for a week but is back to his usual self now.

    Aww, the money shot! There’s nothing more beautiful than a bunny nose and mouth. =:) So sorry to hear about Scamp’s illness but congrats on getting him through it, and glad to know he’s better. And a useful warning to other bunny companions in VHD regions!

    Poor guy. Hope he’s feeling better.

    Do you let Scamp eat those little baby green apples if they are on the branches you cut? I bought apple branches once with the little green apples still on there, but I pulled them all off. Seemed completely unripe. Just wondering.

      I tried to avoid cutting branches with baby apples on, only so that we’d have apples to eat in autumn 🙂 There was one I cut by mistake, but I just left it on. I’m guessing they aren’t going to taste very yummy as they aren’t sweet yet but I don’t think there is anything in them that would do any harm if he did eat it, as they are just unripe apples. I’m not sure I’m give him loads though.
