Has the ‘Easter Bunny’ taken up residence in my garden?

Yesterday around mid-morning I went into my garden to enjoy a bit of fresh air and autumn sunshine and I came across a very pleasant surprise. A small rabbit was tranquilly snipping the clover in my lawn. The little rodent took things more calmly than I did, and patiently waited for me to hastily return to the house to get my camera so I could register the surprising and auspicious event.
What was a little rabbit doing in my garden with such a composed and dignified attitude? I live in an area that can be considered semi-rural, where wild, introduced European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) manage to survive by skillfully dodging the wheels of vehicles passing through the new roads, but this is not one of them. It belongs to the dwarf Belgian variety known as “Lionhead”.

S/he must have found something attractive and pleasant in my garden and decided to stay. It has been a couple of days already and the little rabbit has been continuously back and forth from the border bushes to the center of the garden and around the fountain, enjoying the warm autumn sun while peacefully grazing on the lawn.

I'm about to go out and search around the bushes looking for decorated, small chocolate eggs, which I would expect should be scattered all over the garden.
