Running the vines


On the farm, every Friday
On the farm, it's rabbit pie day.
So, every Friday that ever comes along,
I get up early and sing this little song

Run rabbit – run rabbit – Run! Run! Run!
Run rabbit – run rabbit – Run! Run! Run!
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Goes the farmer's gun.
Run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run.

Run rabbit – run rabbit – Run! Run! Run!
Don't give the farmer his fun! Fun! Fun!
He'll get by without his rabbit pie
So run rabbit – run rabbit – Run! Run! Run!

Gapsted Vineyard, outside Myrtleford, Victoria. Take a bow, Flanagan & Allen.

They look sad in winter. The ones I saw recently in the Napa Valley, California were full of their new spring finery. Now you've got me singing that song in my head for the rest of the night.

Oh, break my heart, Julie. We have wild rabbits around here, and we let them be. Even Lindy ignores them when she's out for a walk. Mind you, they don't come into our back yard any more, as they did before we got a dog.

Kay, this is a take-off of a Tourism Victoria advert for the Yarra Valley wine region. No bunnies were harmed in the making of this post!

I have been preparing my Mudgee post this evening and have vineyards taken in the summer time when in leaf. I like them better that way.

How about a verse to chase crows away Julie!
