One month old today! They’re all still here and doing well, Cheiri is a good mum bunny. They aren’t quite weaned, but almost. Within another week or so, they’ll be entirely eating solid foods.
The little white one likes to sit on the nest box. Either he’s part vulture or he wants to be in charge, I’m not sure which.
This is Gayle three days before hopefully there will be baby bunnies. She’s kinda looking plump in the middle and she’s laying about instead of nibbling on the grasses. She’s already built a nest so she doesn’t need to put the grasses into the nest. Frequently does will get real lethargic a couple of days before birth. Resting up for the big event, perhaps? Three more days before we find out if there will be baby bunnies! Hopefully the change in diet is working, we will see.
So other than bunnies, there was an Orchid Show in Hilo today.
Some of these orchids looked like inter-planetary aliens.
Others looked like flocks of butterflies.
Some were pretty orchids
Some were pretty outrageously colored
And there were just piles of them everywhere. The whole Edith Kanakaole stadium (where they hold the Merrie Monarch hula competition) was full of orchids everywhere. It smelled really nice.
And they were selling the orchids, too! Folks were taking loads of them home.
They do this in Hilo every year, should you feel the need to get orchids to go with fuzzy bunnies.
