At the driveway start to my trails in a stump with, among other things, a concrete rabbit. It was placed there when we did some work on the house to get it out of the way and ended up staying in that spot. When I am coming up the hill from the creek, winding my way back to the house it appears just before I get out of the woods. I've noticed it many times and find it a comforting presence waiting there. I wanted to paint the light at this end of the trail and thought about editing out the rabbit, but decided that it needed to stay. It earned its place.
