Yep, they are all carrots. And you thought they were orange coloured, didn't you!
But what prompted this post is not a carrot at all. Well, not really.
It was a rabbit.
We are looking after a neighbour's rabbit while they are on holidays. I don't know its name so I call it 'Bunrab' when I am in feeding it. I think 'Bunrab' comes from a Pogo Possum cartoon series of long ago. There you go, you can use radiocarrot dating on that bit of information.
Every time the neighbours go on holidays they give us a bag of carrots to supplement the dry food they have for the rabbit. Every time I go in to feed the rabbit I chuck away the limp, withered and, without putting too fine a point on it, disheartened carrot in the compost and leave a fresh, cool, crisp carrot.
The rabbit never touches the carrots.
Where did this rabbit-carrot thing come from? Bugs Bunny? Peter Rabbit?
Any of you out there have a rabbit? Does it eat carrots?
