The little stub on the left is now only an inch tall ... the one on the right is a whole two inches tall.
The evidence was right there to one side of the remains of the plant.
Rabbit poop! Some rascally rabbit ate my little rose almost down to the ground.
To protect the remains of this rose, and two other small roses that were also eaten, I made some little wire cages out of hardware cloth.
This should help convince the bunnies that the snack bar in this rose garden is officially closed.
