Now Playing: Spring is Sprung
As I am sure a lotta you know, we heer at Our Warren cannot declare it is Spring until sumbunny wakes up Wun Morning and decides it is time to sing The Bim Song – which The Lore says was furst discovered by Maman’s Dadda (Phil called him “Bim” which wassa corruption of his name, which was “Bill” – onna’count obba Fakt Phil couldn’t say “m” sounds when he was liddle.) long, long ago when me,Hunny <Senior Bun> joined Our Warren.
And just lately, it seems like it has been a Very Long, Long Winter. Missy went to the Rainbow Bridge - and I can't even begin to tell you about that. No, I can't.
But has been Still Winter heer. And very cold and Dark.
Ennyways, I wassa’bout to go to sleep the udder morning when Maman came cruising past, offering Baby Organic Carrots onna’count ob Nothing.
And I’m like, “Well, hokay. I'll hab wun.”
Onna’count obba Fakt you don’t turn down enny treat no matta how sleepy you might be.
So even though standing up meant I hadda displace Foxie who has taken to sleeping curled around my head, I stood up, took my carrot and carefully sat on hers (a trick I learnt frum Missy) and started eating.
And Right About “then”, as I was eating my carrot and Foxie was sorting around, still looking for hers, Dadda came by and opened uppa ScreenPorch Door! And as soon as he Opened Uppa Door, the Usual Parade started – furst out went Dadda, closely followed by The Dawg, then Cokie skidded around the corner with Beep-the-Udder-Cat close behind.
And that's when I smelled it – that wunnerful, unique smell of rotting veggytation, lingering swamp, and rising worms.
It was Spring right out there onna ScreenPorch!
And rilly soon afta that, heer comes Maman, decked out in GardinGlubs and carrying her baskit ob kitchen tools that she uses to rake over alla those containers she uses to plant Herbs in!
And I could smell Rosemary, too, that had survived over the Winter and was still out there onna ScreenPorch, growing like mad. Not that I wanted enny, mind you, but I could smell it.
So, that wassa Coupla Days ago, and Maman has been out onna ScreenPorch, diggin’ with her kitchen tools ev’ry day. And Dadda anna Dawg have been outside ev’ry day, using big garden rakes and such and consultin’ sum buk called The Farmers’ All-Mens-Nack, which is about right onna’count obba Fakt they are both guys. So there are two raised beds outside that are ready to Grow, hexcept Maman anna All-Mens-Nack said it is too early to “set out” enny lettuce for us yet. So we will have to wait to get Fresh-Frumma-Gardin Lettuce and stuff, but I don't know how long.
Should be soonest, though!
So to get stuff to grow faster, we bunnies are ready now, to sing The Bim Song and declare that it is Spring:Spring is SprungThe Grass is rizWe wonder
Where da birdies iz?So that’s it. It is Officially Spring (see the colour change and ev'ryfing?) heer at Our Warren, and Our Gardin is unner’way. We got Herbs in containers so far, and lettuce, although it sure doesn’t look like much.
So, can dandylions be far behind? Lemme know when you see sum! Yum!
