100th Post: A warren of rabbits
Springtime means bunnies, and we certainly have our share in Deerfield. My neighbor found a nest of five in his yard. Soon they will grow up to eat our vegetables and flowers, but they are little darlings now.
I named them Fiver, Hazel Bigwig, Blackavar and Silver. Those who read "Watership Down" by Richard Adams in the 1970s will recognize the names. I remember reviewing the book for my newspaper and wondering if it would become the classic I thought it would. For the record, it is Penguin Books best-selling novel of all time.
