In ancient times the hare was a symbol of vitality,
sexual desire and fertility and was often chosen as
a gift between lovers. Come on, you can tell me,
it's Valentine's Day - roses, chocolates, perfume,
a hare - what did he get you this year?
The cheapskate! I'm sure it will be delicious.
In Christian iconography the hare is an attribute of
St Martin of Tours. I only mention this because
he lived just down the road from here back in the day
and the fields around the Chateau are
overrun with his furry little chums.
Hare Apparent would make an ideal Valentine's gift and
much less trouble than the real thing. Think about it.
No need to search for dandelion leaves if given live or
suitable recipes should it come "oven ready".
To tempt you further here's Louise's fine rendition
just back from the framer's and all ready to hang.
Bravo, magnificent comes to mind!
Start nagging now and this easy to follow chart could be in your
sticky little hands by nightfall - although I do hope
you wash them first before stitching.
