    Default Windowsills and bunny

    Here are two of my growing areas. The large tabletop area faces west (dappled sun in summer) and gets extra indirect light in the winter from light reflecting off of the snow. If you look closely, you can see my young English angora rabbit in the crate under the orchids. He can't reach them... yet. :-) The east-facing windowsill area gets supplemental indirect light from a south-facing skylight. I fit the orchids in where I can! Maybe a greenhouse... one day...

    The bunny is still teaching me his name... right now it wavers between:
    "BART!!! Why you little!!!"
    Godzilla
    Bam-Bam
    Attila the Bun

    He's actually very sweet and loves attention, petting and treats. But he's like a mischievous, testosterone-poisoned, energetic toddler. (he'll be neutered soon...) So hopefully, he'll teach me a better name then. Ideas welcome! He's very furry, of course, and is a light silvery gray (called chinchilla in rabbit colors).

    For those who wish to see more photos of the bun, visit here (I did a slide show for my young nieces). This was about 5 weeks ago -- the bun is bigger and fuzzier now. More images soon!:

    I hope this is kosher!

    Oh my, your bunny is so tiny your hamster could beat the crap out of it in a war!

    They're both fuzzy and sweet. Thanks for pics!
