There’s been a bit of a vanishing act happening in the garden as of late.
Where there was once a beautiful Balloon Flower in this pot…
… there’s now this.
Where I once had a beaming stand of native Asters along the walkway backdropping the lavender and thyme…
The center stand is no longer there…
… and they appear to have been “snipped”..
Rabbits have found their way back through the fencing, and are wreaking havoc once again.
This time – I’m prepared.
This will make the fourth critter I’ve caught with the live trap. And, I have something to tempt them they just can’t resist…
So… be vewy, vewy, quiet while I research Wabbit Stew.
Finally got the bastard.
End tally –
1 complete stand of chard, 3 pepper plants, 15 carrots, 1/2 a rose bush, 1 fennel plant, 6 tomatoes, All the basil, 1/2 the parsley, 2 balloon flowers, 4 aster clumps, and most of the perennial saliva.
On the plus side – he did clear out a large portion of the creeping cucumber and charlie where he had made an entrance into the garden.
