Furban Jungle: Spring Is In The Air!

This day has been one of ups and downs for yours truly. After getting home after a thoroughly enjoyable and invigorating walk I came to the unpleasant realization that I had somewhere, somehow managed to blow away over half of the photographs I had taken this lovely afternoon. I am none too happy about this. As a matter of fact I am heartbroken. But so it goes.
Luckily my incompetence (or mere bad luck) did not eliminate the preeminent highlight of my sojourn. A scene of such mindfucking cuteness I stood there muttering in slack-jawed amazement— along with a significant number of other people. Children and adults alike.
Yes folks, today I beheld bunnies.
These are not just any floppy eared furkids either: these be Broadway bunnies. They call a neighborhood garden on the dividing thoroughfare between Bushwick and Bedford Stuyvesant their home. As it would happen a woman from Bushwick City Farm (which is located across the street) noticed my rapt interest and gave me the low down. Simply put, her organization is responsible for these little fellas. She also mentioned that the person who donated this space was concerned that these little ones might be experiencing emotional distress. I for one did not and do not believe this to be the case. They seemed to be having a grand time.
As a matter of fact, not even the J/Z train roaring overhead distracted one of them from trying to, uh, do what rabbits do best.
It IS beginning to feel a lot like spring, after all!
