He/She is big, fat and hungry. My neighbors have seen this big bunny in the neighborhood and I’m not sure a dog/cat/owl/hawk/fox, etc. would tackle it, they say. Last year’s good bunny, Ferdinand, who only ate grass and clover has been replaced by a garden rogue. Ferdinand never nibbled any plants, even left alone my lettuce or parsley, but the new bunny wants all the good stuff like the newly planted colorful violas blooms around the borders and in pots here and there… like around my fav bunny below.
Today I walked out and saw this:
Every johnny-jump-up bloom and bud in the garden was eaten…. except on one small viola. I quickly protected the last little blooms. If you look around in the photo, you’ll see all my crocus has been eaten along with the tulips and grape hyacinths greens.
I have yet to see this big bunny that several neighbors have spotted because smart bunny dines in my yard under the cover of darkness. And never having had a rabbit problem in the past, I’m somewhat baffled. Today I will research ways to rabbit-proof the gardens or find out what they don’t like to eat. Any suggestions, aside from harming it, are welcome.
