I have gardened at Longears, my idyllic suburban patch since 1987. My original garden plans did not include rodents of any kind, but I find, year after year, my gardening contributes greatly to the well-being of RABBITS! I am sweet-tempered under normal circumstances. However, rabbits in the garden are NOT normal circumstances! I have chronicled my adventures in one of the sets on my Flickr site, "Mug Shots, Volume III" (volumes I and II are available only in limited first edition hard copy). If you wish to catch up on the history of Longears, you can view that set on my Flickr site:

Since so much of the story is told in the comments (both mine and those of my witty, hilarious contacts), please don't view it as a slide show, but read each frame individually.
Ever,
Jeanette, Mistress of Longears
Raising Rabbits Against My Will Since 1987

    "Jeanette's talents are seemingly endless! She paints with a lighhearted touch, cooks with abandon, writes with a quick, extremely entertaining wit, gardens with determination and against all long-eared odds . . . and, happily, she shares it all with her fortunate flickr friends in her wonderful photos. She and Ozzie are greatly admired by me, and I'm always looking forward to seeing what the day will bring from Longears.

    "The Mistress of Longears is one of my favorite people on flickr. I admire her consummate sense of humor, beautiful gardening skills, delicate touch as a painter, great cooking tips, and fabulous photography of all of the above. Her creativity knows no bounds. And, well, there's her dog...Ozzie is a treat, and puts up with her, so I figure I should, too."

    "Dear Mistress of Longears Manor,

    I am very taken with your view on things.
    In fact I would like to have your view very much to myself, since I am sadly bereft of squirrels, rabbits and chipmunks and whatnot in my apartment.
    Yours is a most fortunate existence.
    I am best pleased you have seen fit to share the bounties of Longears Manor House with the Flickr multitudes who admire from afar...
    From an admiring stranger :)"
