When I spotted the first rabbit it was alone, a single cottontail hopping around a stop sign. It's tiny nose stuck close to the morning's wet ground. I was standing in the kitchen when I saw the rabbit out my window. When I'd stepped outside onto the back deck. It'd gone.
That fleeting moment, however, coaxed me to look around the neighborhood one last time before stepping back inside my house. My spirits were lifted once again when I saw, not one but, two rabbits sniffing around the neighbor's storage building. Another neighbor's chocolate lab began to bark and caused them to take shelter beneath a butterfly bush. I watched as their cottontails bobbed through the cool morning's breeze.
