We’ve all seen snowmen dotting the landscape over the last few days – but few of us have caught sight of a ‘snow bunny’ until now.

Roger Goodchild’s 24 carrot sculpture took three hours to perfect in his Worlingworth garden near Framlingham.

The 52-year-old pest controller, who specialises in fumigation and has a softer spot for fluffier creatures, had started on a sculpture in a nearby field, but when it was knocked over, he moved closer to home on Saturday, as the snow began to thaw.

“I’d looked at some other snow sculptures and thought I’d have a go,” he said.

“It started as a cat but then took the shape of a rabbit.”

Despite his talent, the father-of-four admits to having only a slight artistic tendency and was surprised by the positive reaction received on social media.

“It takes a while to build up and shape,” he added.

“I eventually used a picture of a cartoon bunny to go by.

“I might do it again. The possibilities are endless.”
