This is the last photo I've ever taken of little Linda and I've been putting off talking about it for about two weeks as she passed away at the end of August. And, to be honest, it hasn't really properly sunk in yet and I can't even imagine what it will be like not having anyone for whom to bring bits and bobs from the kitchen when I go back home to Marseille. At least I am very glad that she was still around when I visited last time and I had a chance to say goodbye, in a way, as we knew she didn't have much time left.

But let's look on the bright side, she had a wonderful life and she was an amazing little bunny up until the last second. Heck, in the photo she is at the very top of the garden and that's a place she wasn't really allowed to go to but she decided in the her final months that she really, really, really wanted to explore that area and she would wait next to the gate for any opportunity to go there and she would come back down all by herself! Finally the gate was just left open so she wouldn't have to wait. Well, we did know of her stubbornness when she decided to really wanted to visit the side flowerbed all the time (proof 1 and 2). And I remember that once I saw her there at the top next to the some orange cocktail tomatoes, desperately trying to bite into one but she just couldn't get a grip on it with her teeth... so I asked her if she wanted one and opened one for her in half and she ate the whole thing!

And the thing is, we know she was extremely old but we can't quite remember which year we got her in. I remember we were shopping for back-to-school furniture for a new flat I moved into in Toulon so it must have been either in the second half of 2005 or 2006 so either she was 8 or 9, so she was a very old miniature rabbit lady, but in terms of adventures she probably has lived through and enjoyed about 15 times the stuff that house- or apartment-confined rabbits experience in their lifetime. And she was definitely a social little thing - gardening? Definitely not without Linda jumping into the weed bucket to see if she can't find something tasty to eat. DIY in the garden? Why yes, of course, you must have a bunny running under your feet making sure you were doing things correctly!

And on this note, the pix:pets:linda tag has existed since 2010, so we can all remember her amazing awesomeness and adventures!

Hello hoomin. Can I eat this? Nope. Nice shoes.

I planted those strawberries! Okie, so I didn't actually plant-plant them... I replanted them from another pot and then I watered them. It's kind of like planting. And Carolina - just because!

Another day, another occasion for bunses to show off her acrobat skills and to somehow get into a sectioned-off part of the garden.

Where there is a will, there is a way. And who cares if there is a hoomin watching. (Although it's also kind of bad if there is a hoomin watching because then she puts a protective thing on top of the flowers so nice little bunnies can't eat them anymore.)

Hoomin, do not even think about stealing my piece of cauliflower. It is mine. Mine. See those paws? They're on the cauliflower therefore it is mine.

Oh hooman, like your silly little set up could stop me from getting to the salad bar!

(after this photo was taken the fence was attached better but she still managed to get through somehow, so then a board and strategically placed pots were added and she's been staying out of there since)

Dangerous bunnies roaming around your 'hoods, looking for plants to munch on...

The best little helper of them all helping out with the transplanting/clearing out of flower beds. Or, more accurately, little helper confusing temporary plant storage for a salad bar.

Someone sure is happy with the choices Mum and Dad made at the shop!

Bunses seems to be taking the (relative) heat quite badly this year. 18-19C and she's out for the count... Or maybe I'm just being a helicopter parent and can't accept the fact that she's quite old now. It's just tough seeing her lying there, looking all sad and tired.

And here we have little bunses enjoying fresh flowers picked right off the flower beds. You know, just a regular Sunday afternoon.

Oh, hoomin, do I really have to show you everything? Even how to properly garden? Yes, yes, you have to get close to the earth, that's the secret. And why are you trying to plant those things when you can just eat them? Silly hoomin!

It got warm enough the other day for Carolina to wake up. Then the temperatures dipped again and she went straight back to her little hut.

A bit of little Linda helping out with the gardening (by eating plants) to start out the week.

Caught in the act! No plant is safe!

A bit of bunneeehhhh to start off everyone's week.

Those hoomins, always throwing away good plants! And throwing them away in buckets that are high up on stairs and all.

You have to admit that my mum has the best little helper ever when it comes to gardening.
