The Last of the Spring Blooms

Here's a pic of this week's tulips cut from our yard. Sadly, I don't think we'll get any more because we've had to start mowing the grass. We put it off as long as possible because we had so many wildflowers pop up this year in addition to the tulips and daffodils, and the backyard looked like our own personal tiny meadow. It's too bad we haven't had any bunnies this year because they would've loved it. Actually, we used to get lots of wild rabbits, and this year we haven't seen a single one. We did see a fox a couple of times last summer living in our neighborhood (crazy, right?); we saw him skulking about when we went for walks after dark. Who knows where he came from or if there are several?? Anyway, I really hope the bunny population hasn't been wiped out! Sadness. You would think there'd be enough leftover food/garbage readily available for foxes to snack on in an area as densely populated as ours that they wouldn't bother chasing down all the rabbits. But maybe not?

I'm just going to pretend that everyone's getting along fine and maybe even having tea parties together in someone's backyard. That's what storybooks told me growing up, and I'm pretty sure it's still true.
