Meticulously reproduced with exacting detail from artist Dave Miller's original wood carvings, this floppy rabbit is cast in all-weather resin (the perfect medium for both realism and durability) and beautifully hand-painted. His endearing expression and jointed body give him a liveliness and personality unlike any other garden statuary. A special addition to your own garden or a great gift for someone else.
Pennsylvania sculptor Dave Miller finds his inspiration in the wonders of nature. Since childhood, he has enjoyed spending time outdoors, educating himself about a variety of wildlife, mastering each creature's unique traits. Our Madison Meadows Collection is inspired by his detailed, animated hand carvings.

Comments about Product: This is so cute! I put it in my flower garden. He sits in the mulch. Easy to pose. One day it was pretty windy and I noticed that he had fallen over. I just sat him right back up.
Comments about Product: Super, super cute. Only drawback is that since the head is connected to the body by and eye-bolt, it is difficult to get the head in the exact position you might like. But once settled in place, it is ADORABLE!
Comments about Product: I have a corner lot. The bunny is in my flower bed . I'm sure a lot of passer-bys will give me positive comments. The finish look like painted wood
but is more durable than wood. It was a little wobbly, took a while to position it. It is larger than I thought it would be, but fits well in the space.
Comments about Product: This rabbit is incredibly cute, but very fragile. Be careful taking him out of the box; the limbs on mine were not connected well and his arm fell off and shattered as soon as I took him out. Customer service was great and is sending out a replacement arm, but save yourself the call and support all of his limbs until you get him unwrapped and can tighten his fasteners.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
