Neighborhood Bunny Invasion!

Real Estate Agent with RLAH@properties AB95346

The backyard gardeners in my neighborhood are in a bit of an uproar. We've been invaded, not by cicadas, but by dozens of amazingly cute little fur guys who adore what's popping up in our vegetable patches. Even the carnivorous wildlife that drops in from Rock Creek Park don't seem interested in helping to control the rabbit population.  

And they seem to multiplying like, well, rabbits!

It also gets interesting to those of us who are walking dubiously trained dogs. Picco hasn't spotted one yet, but it's only a matter of time.Urban rabbits are just what we all need!

Hello Pat - while I am aware that some parts of the country are experiencing a cicada takeover this year, this rabbit invasion was news to me.  An abunnydance of bunnies exponentially explored comes to mind.   🐰🐰🐰...

Someone told me that the cicadas won't be coming out in DC this summer, though I don't know why not! The dog was so looking forward to them!

Pat- funny you should mention rabbits because Larry and I have noticed more rabbits when out walking in the Preserve. Our dear sweet hunting dogs would have gone bananas with a rabbit around.

I haven't seen any in my yard, and I'm guessing that crazy Picco is one reason.

I'm guessing a few of my neighbors are considering a change to their menus. Organic grass and garden fed bunnies sound quite nutritious, although I couldn't eat one. It would be like eating my sweet cat for dinner.

Good morning Patricia. When we first moved to the concrete jungle of downtown Chicago, there was some vacant land across the street that was designated to be a park. I liked sitting out on my balcony and watching a rabbit go through his routine daily. Only saw one and wondered how he could survive. Enjoy your day.

Bunnies are cute, so I would definitely prefer to be invaded by bunnies rather than a lot of other things, haha.

Hi Pat,
Those little bunnies are cute but they can be a nuisance to gardeners.
