Finally, the leaves of spring have emerged and have survived the cold temps. Some tree are really smart and don't leaf out until late in spring, as you can see in this picture. Perhaps the tree in the background will sense that it's safe to leaf out by the end of the week.
I wasn't looking at the ground when I was walking out to check the trees. Suddenly I was stopped in my tracks with the sight of my little rabbit frozen in front of me. He didn't run; he just froze, hoping I wouldn't notice him at all. I think he was enjoying eating the green grass and didn't want to "step away from the lunch table." I slowly backed away, got back in the house for the camera, and returned for a close-up shot. He hadn't moved a hair.
