The Scene of the Crime

It didn't take CSI-type detective skills to figure out what happened to this little rose ... a baby plant of 'J. C. Thornton' that I planted last month.

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.

  4. Those wascally-vegatarian-wabbits!
    They worked over our plants too--darn them!
    btw~when I was a little girl, I had a pet rabbit who used to just love mom's chives in the garden. She always had some crazy breath! ; D

  8. Whoa! That was one hungry rabbit. I feel very fortunate that I don't have to worry about rabbits snacking on my garden. But if I ever do, I'm employing your wire cage idea.

  9. I have similar problems, Connie, with rabbits living under the potting shed in the kitchen garden! Glad you foiled your little intruder. P. x
