Almost Spring

Time for more Zendala art (template from LonettA’s CreA(R)Tive’s). I’ve been working on my Zentangle pattern collection and found several new patterns to try. Here’s pearly with a bunch of lines to add some depth.

materials: printer paper, micron, pencil, white gel pen

Life on the property has been pretty fun of late. Willow and my other two female bunnies (Cedar and Licorice) had litters a few days ago. Everyone seems safe and healthy so far. In another couple of days, I’ll take a more serious head count and do a bit of cleanup.

Forest, my DIL and I are talking about putting all our bunnies in a colony. What that means is our bunnies would live together in a large barn/run unit. It’s a lot less work for upkeep, but we may have to remove the males now and then to keep the numbers down (rabbits do breed like … rabbits). We’re still talking through all the angles. If we do make the move, I’ll give y’all a look at the process.

The snow is receding and we’re dealing with a bit of mud. When that’s done and temperatures are a bit warmer, we’ll call it Spring and start outside work in the garden and on the house. We bought a couple of bare root fruit trees and I ordered a few more landscape trees and some thornless blackberries.

Most of my people activities have been canceled because of the coronavirus. No church, no gatherings, no swimming at the gym for my sweetie. We’re trying to stay connected by phone and computer. I hope y’all are staying safe and have plenty of toilet paper. Take care.

  1. Beautiful tile, very original to use only the pattern Pearly and elementary strokes!
    I’m curious to see what you are gonna do with the bunnies but I also think that you have to separate the males and the females?

    • Thanks for your kind words. With the bunnies, we’ll remove the “teenager” bunnies and separate them by sex. They will spend the summer in large rabbit tractors in a meadow. We’ll only keep our breeding stock and babies in the colony area. We’re hoping each doe will produce 3-4 litters a year. If they start over-producing we can pull the males out for a while and give the females a rest.
