Sarah Cooper
To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under the sun.
A time to be born and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill and a time to heal ...
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance ...
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to lose and a time to seek;
a time to rend and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Now that Spring has sprung we needed to finish our last bit of Winter business.
This past weekend we laid to rest a very important member of our family, whom we lost quite suddenly over the winter months.
Cleopatra ~Cleo~.
A very special bunny who came in and charmed the socks off every person who passed through our door. There were people who were not bunny people, some not even animal people who were bowled over by her sheer insistence that 'Yes, indeed, you did want to talk to the bunny. Of course, why would you not?'
We pulled up a portion of the 'faux' Cobblestone Patio we laid last year and made sure that she was laid down deep. Then we gave her some of the roses she was constantly trying to steal while she was alive. In the months ahead the 2 climbing rose bushes; one red & one yellow will burst with blooms and be a fitting tribute.
This is our 'Bunny Garden':
This is a close up of the Bunny Sculpture we bought a few days after Cleo died.
The pose was just so 'her'. We knew were it would go:

In loving Memory of a Very Special Bunny.
Taken unexpectedly from us you left a big hole in this family...
May you be hopping free and whole near the Rainbow Bridge, waiting for us.
