The Potting Shed is home to lots of bunnies. . .

Last spring I felt like Mrs. McGregor trying to keep Peter Rabbit and friends out of the flower patch. . .

It was a losing proposition!

Word quickly spread through the rabbit grapevine about the all-you-can-eat buffet. . .

And bunnies multiplied as they tend to do. . .

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. ;)

 Bunnies gathered in the Potting Shed for a little tabletop fun in celebration of spring with Easter on its way.

Did you know a group of group of wild rabbits is called a ‘fluffle’?

Let me introduce to some of my ‘fluffle’ and favorite bunny friends. . .

Another favorite bunny is a Fitz and Floyd Halcyon Rabbit Teapot purchased many years ago.

Ball jar bouquets are blooming with a mix of tulips, Bupleurum, aka, Hare’s Ear, (=’.’=) and daffodils cut from the yard. A pair of bunny plant picks and Easter eggs add a little whimsy, tucked in the bouquets.

A note about Daffodils in flower arrangements:

Daffodils secrete a milky sap when cut that shortens the vase life of other flowers. To use them in a mixed bouquet, cut them and put them in a vase by themselves overnight. After sitting overnight they will have secreted their sap and they’re ready to add to other flowers as long as you don’t cut the stems again.

A pansy bunny pitcher is filled with hydrangeas and tulips, while playful pansy bunny salt and pepper shakers are frolicking in celebration of spring.

And bunny ears are hiding in the napkins, as napkin rings.

    Guess I need to out away my St Patrick’s decor and bring out the bunnies. Have t seen any of the real ones as yet but I am sure they will be here any day. How they love to nibble on my plants fresh spring growth. Love them non the less both real and fake! Enjoy our lovely spring weather here in N.C.

    I love starting my day dreaming about your amazing potting shed and all your creative ideas. Love the rabbits, all of them but especially those live bunnies. Happy Spring to all.

    That tabletop creation is absolutely an adorable fluffle in itself! I just love all the color and cuteness of the flowers, plates and textiles. You have some really cute pictures of those pesky rabbits, hilarious, in fact. (I know, not funny, but funny). It’s a good thing they’re so cute, right? Thanks for the fun start to this Monday morning.

      You have created a bunny heaven for sure with all your beautiful plants, they have the perfect salad bar! Hehe. So good to see the shed in her finest spring tribute to the bunnies, Peter Rabbit would be proud! Such a lovely display, makes me feel like we are at a special spring brunch. The flowers make my heart happy! Happy SPRING indeed! 🐇🐇🐇🌸🌸🌸

    Mary, so many bunnies inside and out! I remember last year when businesses began to reopen; I went to Home Goods and Easter/spring items were 75% off. Who could resist? I will enjoy having them this year to celebrate!

    Love your photo of bunny on his back legs sniffing the vines. Thanks for the new vocabulary word -“fluffier”

    HOPPY EASTER!! I just love all these bunnies!! We have lots of bunnies and they like my plants, at the beginning of my planting, too but later they don’t lop off the flowers…mainly because they can no longer reach them…I’ll take the bunnies over the chipmunks any day…your table is a REAL tribute to the BUNNIES (not dust bunnies either) !

      There is just so much cuteness here…I’m bowled over!! It’s going to be Autumn before I get this Easter Egg Tree done…pass the glue please…franki

    What a fabulous collection of bunny goodies. I love that teapot. I have a bunny teapot, but it’s different from yours. I tend to think that I like yours better. I also love your napkins. I tend to go with solids rather than florals, but you really make it work here. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Mary, the bunnies are darling on the tabletop, not so much when they are dining on your garden buffet. Your details are always stunning and the flowers are beautiful! Happy Monday!

    Lovely. . . .esp when you add the bunny decor interspersed with the photographic evidence of the real bunnies. Their bathroom droppings are left on my grass and garden every evening.

    Hello Mary…always enjoy your beautiful and inspiring posts…this bunny one is particularly wonderful! So festive and colorful! I have the two bunny ceramic pieces you feature in this post (the pitcher and teapot)…I need to go get them out of storage and enjoy them in person before Easter has passed us by! Thank You!

    Mary, Your potting shed is filled with beautiful Spring bunnies and flowers inside and outside. Love the salad plates! Mine are decorating the kitchen table. Your F&F bunnies are so cute. The rabbit shaped plates are adorable. The floral arrangements are so colorful and bright. The bunny nestled among the pansies is a favorite! The real bunnies are such pests but their cuteness captured in the pictures lessens the pain somewhat. Your Monday morning bunny round up was an enjoyable post. Have a wonderful week! Clara ❤️

  15. March 22, 2021 at 10:47 am

    So cheerful, loving spring on a gray day here! Adore your real bunnies participation, although I imagine you would be just as happy bunny free!

    So pretty and I always love your posts. Love the bunny plates—the fact that there are no Easter eggs included in the design so they can be used anytime for a garden themed table.

  17. March 22, 2021 at 11:03 am

    Bunny Love Mary! Adorable, every little bunny, bloom and egg! Spring has sprung all over your Potting Shed! 🌷🐰🌷

    It’s officially Spring now that the bunnies have arrived! I can imagine how fun it is to be in the garden and capture them on “film” scampering about. Not so fun to watch them graze through one’s garden. Maybe that’s why they were made to be so cute: their cuteness outweighs and smorgasbord damage. Hoppy Spring!🐇🐇🐇🐇

  19. March 22, 2021 at 11:18 am

    Hi, Mary. NO ONE does bunnies like you do….everything is just so SPRING!!! Loving it all, Sandi

  20. March 22, 2021 at 11:27 am

    Loving all the bunnies — inside the potting shed! Bunnies outside — not so much, lol! Between them and the deer, I hardly get to enjoy spring blooming bulbs.

    A timely post Mary… I’ve been kicking around the idea of starting up the vegetable garden again… You helped remind me of why I gave it up in the first place:@) Love your little S&P (I’m guessing) bunnies on the flowers plate! Happy Early Spring-enjoy!

    • March 22, 2021 at 6:03 pm

      Hi Lynn, Yes I’m sure Peter Rabbit would be delighted if you’d plant a veggie garden! 🪴 I’ve seen a big bunny scampering under the shed already this month. Looks like no zinnias again this year unless I can find a bunny repellent that works! 🐇🌸

    What an adorable bunny parade! I do understand about bunnies!! They are so cute but can be very frustrating!!

  27. March 23, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    Oh Mary! I am in awe of all the beauty in this post! I don’t know where to begin… except to say how lovely it all is in your potting shed! You amaze me with your collections and your brilliant photography!
    Bunnies are so darn cute… but oh my they can be upsetting. Here in the desert our back yard has 6-8 foot walls which gives us another whole room as it’s extremely private. But the bunnies were recking havoc with our new plantings. So sweet man made sure to add some protection at our gates so the only thing that can get in now are birds and lizards.
    Happy Tuesday dear friend! I have returned back to Blogland after a bit of a hiatus. So I missed some of your posts. I’m so glad I returned and saw this beautiful bunny post!
    Happy Week to you!

  28. March 24, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Eastern Cottontail Bunny in Central Park, Manhattan, New York. You have a wonderful menagerie where you live. We do also, but hidden away….just coming out for paparrazzi.

  29. March 24, 2021 at 10:27 am

    Good morning, Mary and thanks for this delightful post! It is pouring rain here today so this has made me smile! I planted 56 pansies over the weekend and yesterday saw some were dug up and chewed on:( I will persevere though:) I LOVE your S and P set! We don’t have flowers blooming yet, just peeking out of the ground.

  30. March 24, 2021 at 3:43 pm

    What a lovely table setting and all these little bunnies in your garden. They must be a joy to watch though.

  31. March 25, 2021 at 8:47 am

    I much prefer seeing your happy bunnies inside your pitting shed, Mary, than those outside. I know the real ones are so cute, but they can feed on expensive plants and flowers!! You have so many pretties to enjoy for Easter!

    I don’t have real bunnies but do have bunny figurines inside and out. I have a pair that live on my dining room table all year round. Sometimes they get a bow to coordinate with the season; sometimes not. Everywhere you turn your head in my living room, you’ll see a bunny.
    But my little dog (a very smart chihuahua named Kiku) is herself a very cuddly bunny!

    Love your girls. 💛💗

  33. March 25, 2022 at 8:54 am

    A fluffle? I’m laughing out loud! How adorable! As are all your bunnies! What a delightful post! Obviously, I need more bunnies in my life!
