First Day of Spring

Well today is the first day of Spring and here in Dallas we have a chance of snow. Yes, that is right, it's going down to 32 degrees tonight and there is a Winter storm warning.  For the past two weeks the weather has been very spring like.  Us rabbits have ventured out of the warren and started work in the surrounding grasses.  The first signs of Spring include the red breasted robins lighting upon the budding oaks and maples singing like they are auditioning for American Idol.  The iris are blooming and we even bought and planted the last saucer magnolia tree that the nursery had.

The gorgeous weather got me (Bunny) wanting to create...something for the pasture.  I scavanged through the hutch and found these times.
Cyclone fence post toppers with roosters, jello mold,
lamp finial, and chain

Rabbit drilled holes into the edge of the jello mold and attached the finial to the bottom, which then became the top.

I then took the whole afternoon sitting out on the back deck and attached the chain to the roosters (thru the eyes...ouch!) and then hung the chains from the holes along the edge of the mold.  Attached another chain to the top of the finial and walla...instant wind chime.  Of course I have to give credit to Rabbit since he had created a wind chime similar to this one but using some 10 to 12 roosters.

Here is the result...
