I don’t know the actual name of this rose, but the glorious colors remind me of a vivid sunset. I had a day I was particularly down about something that had really gone wrong with work. Blaine arrived home at the end of the day with a bouquet of these roses. Can we say, Awwwwww! I don’t even remember now what had me so down that day. The roses are the memory now. The colors were so spectacular that I had to take a picture to preserve the beauty.
Seriously, as rabbit lovers, this was irresistible. Twitter users started sharing the link over the weekend for International Carrot Day, April 4th. Logically, an Etsy treasury devoted to carrots had to follow, with a few carrot loving rabbits too.
Here’s a carrot fact from Bugs Bunny cartoon history. The voice of Bugs, Mel Blanc, hated carrots. They tried all kinds of fruits and vegetables to see if biting in and crunching something else could sound like a carrot. Nothing but a carrot sounded like a carrot. So Mel would bite in and crunch on the carrots and then spit them out.
Sorry Mel, but for us it is time to pause and get our paws on some lovely carrots!
