My neighbor across the street recently made a discovery. She was watering a little garden area in her front yard and these little baby bunnies hopped out. They weren’t too happy about getting wet!

Aren't they adorable?

My husband put his hand in the pic so you can tell how small they are!

So, we shooed them back under the tree. We didn’t want any neighborhood cats to find them! What a fun treat to get to see these little ones!

Today’s Lagniappe: Summer Tomato Sandwich
With fresh tomatoes available, you gotta find ways to use their yummy goodness!

  • 1 (1 pound) loaf ciabatta bread
  • 3/4 cup pesto
  • 8 ounces fontina cheese, sliced
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 leaves butter lettuce
  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Slice ciabatta bread in half lengthwise. Spread pesto on the cut side of each half. Top bottom half with slices of fontina cheese, and then place slices of tomato on top of cheese. Broil until cheese melts, and remove from broiler.
  3. Place lettuce over tomatoes, and then position top half of bread on top of everything. Slice into 8 or 10 small sandwiches, and serve.

    Oh so precious! I love those little babies. We have a rabbit that hops into our front yard sometimes at night. I’m terrified my cat Clyde will find it!

    Aw…. soooooooo cute!!! I didn’t really realize how tiny they were until I saw the photo with hubby’s hand. Too, too cute!!!

    Your sandwich sounds wonderful as well… I can taste it now.

    They really are very little and very cute. We had bunnies in our garden last year. When they were all in the nest together it was so crowded I thought they would smother each other, but they knew what they were doing and all survived…Happy Outdoor Wednesday.

    They are so cute. We have bunnies running all over the hillside in the evening.

    I remember finding a little baby bunny in a space between the garage door and wall. I made my husband carry it back to the opening of a bunny hole in our yard. I know that the little baby has grown up and made lots of other little baby bunnies because I see them ‘playing’ in our yard.

  19. Simply Susan Says:

    I just love the baby bunnies! They are so tiny!

    Baby bunnies! Great photos. We have rabbits around, too, but now DH has brought the cats from OK, so I imagine I will not be seeing the bunnies as I have been. Thanks for visiting my blog.
