this bunny, if i remember correctly, is from my childhood. it's on the plaza in kansas city (that's pronounced with a flat midwestern "a" by the way, not like the plahza hotel in new york), along with a bunch more (and weren't there some other animals, too? an odd turtle or something like that?). i used to love walking around there at easter time -- when we lived in kansas (approximately between the years i was in kindergarten and second grade), there was a huge family brunch every sunday (at putsch's, i think). it's funny, those brunches are among my happiest childhood memories, but my actual memories of them are very vague and sketchy: walking past the aforementioned bunnies and the many fountains; peering in the window at russell stover; and the many choices of syrup for our pancakes at brunch. strawberry, blueberry,...there were at least four different brightly colored syrups. and strawberry pancakes.
