Lagomorpha Leporidae!

Lagomorpha Leporidae!
That I say this you wonder why?
It’s keeping up my usual habits
Of, on the first, declaring ‘Rabbits’!

The only true bunny is really distinct,
But poor Bunolagus is almost extinct;
The area these rabbits best thrived and grew
Was riverine half-desert, in the Karoo.

For the current Photo Challenge of Structure

I am turning to this Structure of Learning where I did my last of many years of Spring Walk Stair Duty. The route of the traditional parade of spring hats goes via some stairs where it has been my annual responsibility to ensure that none of the little darlings go down head first. This year the hats had to be left inside because a nasty gale was blowing.

Here is young J doing one of her circuits:

And finally, with the elaborate structure of her hat.

And my Owlingly Funny Talepiece from Rufus the Owl, featured in Tabika:

    Spring walk stair duty! Volunteering in a child’s school is a valuable use of time. Miss J wears her creatively inspired bonnet with great style. 🙂

    That hat is worthy of Ascot.
