Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

A Bunny Update

Monday, June 23, 2014

Before we get to the adorable little hoppers we have running around, I thought I would share this pic I snapped of one of my giant lilies in our side yard. 

These are interesting in that, well, they're huge (bigger than my hand).  But they also start out as bright orange and then gradually fade until the petals fall. You can see that this one is starting to fade already. 

I went out to check on the bunnies over the weekend to find their eyes open and they had almost doubled in size.  A couple of them were hopping around and one of the little guys apparently decided that just standing completely still when coming face to face with an adoring human was the best course of action in the situation, even though he was inches from our potato bed. 
I couldn't resist reaching down to stroke his back with a finger and, with that, he was off like a shot under the potato leaves.

Mom watched disapprovingly from a safe distance.  See her giving me the evil eye?

Since Saturday, there's been no sign of bunnies so they're either still in hiding in the safety of our new lots or Mom is off teaching them the bunny ropes.  I'm sure we'll see them again but, for now, I'm glad they're out of the garden.

I'm now off to go catch up on blogs and see what's going on in everybody else's gardens.
