Freckles stayed in her fierce, glaring posture for a long time. Boy, do bunnies have patience! Finally, she must have given up and she began her grooming routine.
I love to watch her groom herself. She always starts with her lovely dewlap and moves to other parts of her body. The Washing of the Ears is my favorite part. She’ll pull her ears down one at a time with her paws and lick them, sometimes running her paws through them several times before she is satisfied. Then she licks her paws and rubs them on her face and head. I’m always mesmerized by her actions, as I was this time.
When she was finished, I decided it was time to act. I rose from my chair and headed for the planter.
