The other day we noticed that the large white rabbit, the model for the previous post on the Year of the Rabbit, was also back there. It was eating the corn that is too big for the little birds to eat. Nice how they all share. The good news that the rabbit had to share was that its ears are turning from white to brown. That means spring is just around the corner! That's welcome news. The sparrows were all gossipy about it.

Last year was quite a rollercoaster with lots of unrest in many areas of the world - rioting in Europe and clashes in the Middle East. Floods, hurricanes, avalanches, and volcano eruptions proved that even the weather was in discord.
So welcome to the Rabbit. The world could use a return to manners, civility and good taste.
I wish you all the best in this year.

They did make me smile and feel that maybe the cold weather and snow will end, maybe the sun will shine again, maybe the breezes will be warm and pleasant again.
Many years ago, I heard an interview with a woman who lived in northern Scotland where it got cold and dark early. She said they coped with it by "Drawing the drapes against the dark, lighting a fire against the cold, and having a wee dram to warm the heart".
I have daffodils and a shot of Kahlua in my coffee. Yeah, that's better!
