lucy's rabbit


mimi gave this rabbit to lucy and for some reason lucy decided she wanted to put it in the garden under her artichoke plant. why? she has somehow come to the conclusion that this will keep birds away, because apparently "birds are really, really scared of rabbits." ok. it is our own tiny, innocent-looking version of a scarecrow. instead of keeping the birds away altogether, we wait til they are happily munching on our vegetables and suddenly out of the corner of their eye they see a glassy-eyed rabbit watching them. they are so startled and disturbed that they fly away, never to return... or something like that. lucy does really, genuinely care about her sweet little artichoke plant, though...
and while we're here, a little update on our garden...
