This is the first year I've ever had spring bulbs blossom - so far about a dozen golden crocuses have cheered me and the kids each morning when we look out our front windows. The hyacinths are showing promising growth and will likely blossom in the next 10 days or so. Tulips are on their way. I love flowers, especially these cute little yellow ones. It's like growing sunshine.
Apparently Mr. Bunny likes little yellow flowers as well. Yup, he ate all but two of my crocuses! Noah could've left rabbits off the ark with no consequential ecological damage. There are plenty of other small varmits for larger predators to eat.
Living in a neighborhood prevents one from dealing with such problems as they should - Clint Eastwood style. So we headed to the store for chemical warfare weapons. I was looking for something with a name like "Liquid Bullets" or "RIP Rabbits." Death in a can, extra-strength. Steve pointed out a product called "Havaheart." He doesn't really understand the level this battle has escalated to (last spring the evil furballs PICKED CLEAN my entire garden, leaving green sticks in neat rows). The best we could come up with was a repellent called Liquid Fence. I'll let you know if it works. I would much prefer to wake up in the morning and find carcasses instead of tracks. By the way, isn't angora yarn made of rabbit fur??
If anyone else has had problems with rabbits eating their greens, please let me know how to save my flowers and future garden. I'm almost ready to buy a large dog (you have to know me to appreciate the extreme nature of that statement!).
