Like a lot of other people, our pets have funny quirks.  Lovage and Daisy, two of our bunnies, have a funny kind of relationship – they clearly love and enjoy each other’s company, but they do have strange habits.

This is one of them…

Whenever Daisy, the small black and white bossy one, decides to have a drink, Lovage, the sandy coloured doormat, hops over and let’s her stand on him whilst she takes a sip. 

Yesterday was even funnier, as Lovage was already having a snooze in the sun, conveniently below the water bottle.  So Daisy took the chance to use him at a foot stool to make drinking even easier.

What are they like??  Anyone else hae bunnies that do this, or are we the only one’s with the weirdo bunny couple?

Mr Rigg is away in Edinburgh this weekend on a stag do…last I heard was “still up” via text sent at 3am this morning…

Buddy and I are having a much quieter weekend at home.  So far we have trimmed bushes in our tiny front garden, massacred the raspberry canes at the end of the garden, picked a small bowl of loganberries, followed a rumour that a farm nearby sells homegrown flowers at the gate (they do, just none today), and planted winter hardy leeks at the allotment.

Sadly I forgot my camera today when we went to the allotment, but thankfully I have some photos from my last visit looking very much the same.

Everything growing on the allotment seems to have doubled in size since I was last there.  The courgette and squash plants are trailing and spreading everywhere…

The sunflowers are starting to flower and have lots more buds just waiting to pop open…

There is masses of camomile and my pink Cosmos are thick with flowers…

The onions have been dug up and left out to dry – which has been difficult considering the rain we’ve had…

Lots of ladybirds everywhere – I love them so much…

And this cheeky rabbit who clearly thought he hadn’t been spotted…

I came home with a basket laden with onions, one giant green courgette, a single burnt orange sunflower, and handfuls of Cosmos and camomile to brighten up the living room…

Look at this lovely picture the little sister took of my lovely bunny Borage…

She keeps changing her blog name, but hopefully now it’s sticking at this.  She also took some lovely photos of deer at my local National Trust – Dunham Massey.  She’s aspiring to be a pet photographer at the moment and I’m her biggest fan.

It is snowing here!  How exciting – it never snows here, it only ever rains…and rains some more.  So we are very excited to see big white flakes tumbling from the sky.

The bunnies have been out having fun in the snow – our littlest bunny and newest addition to our family seems to be getting along well with Lovage and so fingers-crossed will be staying…

She has a name too – Daisy.

Here is Lovage and Daisy having fun in the snow…

Borage, Lovage and Daisy had their first Christmas present (I didn’t know bunnies got presents at Christmas!) delivered today from the lovely Carole and Geoff at Fed & Watered.  Carole and Geoff, along with a lady called Clare are our bunnies ‘furry godmothers’ – they come and look after the bunnies when we go away on holiday.  They come highly recommended!
