Waiting for the photographer

Hula Bunny Yarn

It’s a rainy day, so of course that’s when the magazine photographer is supposed to show up to take pictures of bunnies and things.  Sigh!

There is an article being worked on about fiber critters in Hawaii or some such, not quite sure what their exact topic is, but the journalist visited the bunnies last week.  It was, of course, a gorgeous sunny day but she didn’t have her photographer with her that day.  Ooops!  So, he’s supposed to visit today and see the bunnies and it is a miserable wet rainy day.

Guess they will have to be inside bunnies instead of out in the sunshine bunnies.

We gathered up some of the yarns and things from Vera’s Treasures so the photographer can see them since it seems like it’s gonna be an inside kinda day.

Baby Gayle got weighed and came in at one pound nine ounces at three weeks old.  Gayle is a singleton and is the only one in her litter so she’s getting what would be enough food to feed up to ten baby bunnies.  When she’s fully adult, she will be just over five pounds, so to be a pound and three quarters at three weeks old seems pretty plump to me!  I’ve not closely tracked weights of baby buns though, to know by how much more plump she may be over a ‘normal’ weight at this age.

I think baby Gayle is a girl bunny, though, so she will get to stay here if she is female.  We need more buns to make the ‘Moonlit Dance’ color of Hula Bunny yarn.

Well, soon as the rain slows down, I’ll go out and feed the herd and set up the nest boxes for the possible three litters we may be having later this week.  Not sure if the photographer is gonna want to visit bunnies in the rain or not.
