While most folks are shoveling sidewalks and driveways,
the Flower is diligently digging snow off her deck.
Why would I make a path to nowhere?
The bunnies, of course.
Their yard in under the deck. They have not been out for days.
They dislike snow, but more than that, they hate to be dripped on.
Before they can leave the comforts of their bunny room in the basement,
the snow must be removed.
Melting will not do, because melting means dripping.
It’s been a tough week inside for the bunnies.
Barley seems depressed.
It could be indigestion. He ate some bristles off the broom while my back was turned.
Charlotte is bored. She has been throwing the hay pan in protest.
They have been keeping busy inside. But they need to get back outside.
That’s why I shoveled a path to the deck railing.
So I could throw snow over it to the ground below.
It’s all about the bunnies here.
If you don’t believe me, ask Mr. Flower. He’ll tell you.
