After the rabbit seemed satisfied with it's hole, it busied itself with hopping around the yard, collecting mouthfuls of fresh grass and returning to the hole to line its den. It seemed completely oblivious to the din of the children playing in the yard, and even when it was briefly given chase by the elated children, it remained undeterred from its relocation efforts.
During lunch, the bunny decided to keep the children company. She found a shady spot under the tree (right in the middle of the yard, 25 feet from the patio where the children were eating) and munched on some fresh grass while the children finished their lunches. Afterwards, she returned to her den in the mulch pile, climbed inside, and has not been seen since.
Perhaps our little garden is destined to become the pantry of a little bunny brood. Good thing I'm not Mrs. McGregor!
