A Cotton-tailed Rabbit has been visiting the yards of the row of homes that I live among.  I was quite surprised to spot the bunny sitting in the St. Augustine grass lawn, in the back yard,  just about five feet from a neighbor’s home.  On June 29, 2013, I again saw the rabbit (or its look-alike) right up against another close neighbor’s house!  Prior to about a week ago, I had not seen rabbits within a half-mile of my home.

My husband told me, much to my great surprise, that he had seen that same rabbit go up onto my other next door neighbor’s porch earlier that day!  So, the resident Grey Squirrels have a new friend here.  I will likely have to put up a short rabbit fence around any above ground planter boxes I may plan to have in my patio area, for growing vegetables.  I took these pictures in my yards on June 25, 2013, and again on June 29, 2013.   Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
