Something has been clipping off forming blossoms from my new garden and I haven’t been happy about it. I went to the nursery with one of the clipped-off blossoms to see if they knew what had happened, and they said it was a critter.
Last Saturday someone asked my husband if we had been having a problem with rabbits, that there were rabbits with young around. I wondered, if such rabbits did exist, how they got into our back yard which has a 4 foot privacy fence around it. But since the nursery confirmed that it was a critter, I scattered blood meal throughout the garden and haven’t seen any more damage. However I still wondered about the rabbit.
Early this morning my husband was outside and looked over the back fence. He took this photo of a rabbit close to our yard. He also found a place under the fence where a rabbit could have gotten in so that will be patched up today.
If only we would have found this out before I lost 2 of the 3 coming flowers on my new White Swan Echinacea plant, and many of the coming flowers on my Champagne Bubbles Icelandic Poppy.
