Well it's DONE!!!
I just need to let the plants root and i can move her in.
In front of the hutch left and right i have cilantro.
On the right the little trees are cucumber. I think they'll grow up nicely and provide some shade and barrier from the other 2 wabbits
In front of the brick perch ... read closely dkm & fluffies :-D ... is BASIL!!!
and on either side of the 2 stones is peppermint. I'm hoping it will grow like ground cover around the stones.
Outside on the right and protected by more fencing is a cherry tomato plant. I'm looking forward to that one!

This is actually from Saturday - more of the finest in bunny disapproval. I took archi out to see the enclosure with the plants thinking maybe she'd explore a little but she did the same thing - turned right around and went back in the house. I wish i had central air and heat bunnygirl but i don't so i'm not sure what the draw to inside is for her other than the ability to hide under the bed which she does most of the day :-)
I want to give the plants a week or so to stabilize before i put her in and I still have to get the fencing put in place - i got kinda distracted. Saturday Ollie was having a hard day so I took a lot of breaks from working to sit in the yard and cuddle him. At one point i even picked him up and set him in my lap which he usually fights cuz he's way big to be a lap dog - but he rested in my arms for a while!
thanks for all your nose bumps, purrayers, prayers, hugs and just genuine outpouring of care - it is hard - he was a GREAT dog ... i'm thankful he's not sick anymore. but now i realize the missing him part.

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. (romans 8 - esv)

The hutch is in place where it will go and the border is in. Next is fill dirt to raise her up to the level of the border. Tried to get some from a pile in the road but it's just sandy - mentone dirt is really sand - this is "Mentone Beach" after all... after i get the fill dirt in I'll put some veggie plants in for her and a fence and then she'll be ready to move in. It will be nice.

so i am building an outdoor enclosure for my bunny butthead Archi. she doesn't seem to get the whole litter box concept - she pees everywhere in her house, not just in the litter box. i have a Smells Begone solid i bought from my biz to soak up the smell but it doesn't work on urine + hay - so my bedroom often has the smell of a horse stable :( thankfully she doesn't pee everywhere else in the house but just inside her house... but still the smell is killing me
so i'm moving her outside. of course to do that i have to build a nice big enclosure. (it's 15' long by 4' wide) the first step is digging up the ground and laying chicken wire so she can't dig out.
that's what you see above. laid the wire and have begun covering it.
and i put her in the area tonight so she could sniff it out. you know what she did? she sat there for a 1/2 a minute maybe and then turned and hopped thru the front door and back into the house. she was not impressed ;-p
i wish i had grabbed my camera. it was disapproval at its finest!
