My third bento: Beautiful Morning Breakfast Bento

Again...this was a learning experience. I focused too much on being artistic and again, didn't have enough protein. That seems to be a bit of an issue with me for some reason. Am I going vegetarian? I hope not! I loooove meat, but unless I cook it the night before, I just don't have the energy to cook something up at, you know, 5am when I wake up. However, this bento won 2nd place in the last newbie contest, so I guess I can't say I'm entirely disappointed!!!!

Here's the description I sent in for the contest:
Right side: White rice mixed with blue food dye to represent the sky. Nori/edemame is used for the grass. Edemame pods are used for the flower stems and there are carrots used for flowers. I used a miniature breakfast sausage for the tree trunk and broccoli florets for the tree top. The sun is a slice of hardboiled egg yolk, and part of the remaining egg white was mashed up and used for clouds. I cut some nori to look like faraway flying birds...and there's a little bunny poking his head out from behind a flower!
Left side: Four Hello Kitty character chocolate chip waffles, red grapes, apple slices, more miniature breakfast sausages and a few cheese cubes. There is a little sauce inside the bunny bottle for the rice.
