Celebrating Spring with a Gift for the Birdies…


Spring is officially here, and I decided I’d celebrate by leaving some nest-making supplies out for the birds!

I figure they’ve got plenty of twigs, mud, and pine needles at their disposal, but thought they might enjoy using some bunny fur to make their nest soft and cuddly.  I saved some of the fur from the last brushings we gave Cypress and Pinto, and amassed a few handfuls of fur.*

White and brown fur from our male bunny, Pinto
White fur from our female bunny, Cypress (sprinkled with a few of Pinto’s brown hairs)
Doesn’t it look comfy?
I decided some yarn and thread bits might also be nice for the birdies to use, so I gathered some scrap pieces of the sari yarns I used on some of the necklaces I posted on Etsy and pulled them apart.  I also added some turquoise fibers from my stash.
It makes me giddy to think of precious little nests lined with our bunnies’ fur and/or with these beautiful fibers.  I know I’ll never actually see the nests these offerings make it into, but I have a great imagination and love the image I’ve created in my mind’s eye.  :]
I left my offerings near our home. There’s a pond across the way, where froggies croak at night (their ribbety chorus fills me with glee!), and I left the “warm and fuzzies” along the path by the pond where I’ve seen birds flit about, back a bit in the bushes.  I know they don’t need my offerings, but I still hope they’ll make use of them and enjoy them…
Happy Spring, everyone!  What are you doing to celebrate the new season?
Warm regards,
