My Nemesis

If you enlarge this picture (double click on it) and look right in the middle of the grassy path you will see my nemesis, Bunny. He is a tricky little devil, disguising himself as a sweet little fluffy fur ball with big brown eyes and a cute cotton tail, but he is a chomping machine. He alone (well with many siblings and cousins I suspect) can make me give up on dreams and abandon weeks of hard work in one night of decadent foraging through my vegetable beds. He is cavalierly hopping around in the early morning even though he can clearly see me and the dogs on the other side of the yard. A bold creature, this Bunny. Well I've outsmarted him. Where the lettuce and carrots once grew there are now rose bushes and he is forced to nibble on the grassy paths. Not quite sure who won this battle but we are now at peace.

I had to call a truce with the cannot nest in the yard...found another one before they dropped the litter...and I net or humanely spray all I have to protect from the little varmits...they can have the grass or clover

Only problem is rabbits love rose bushes almost as much as they love lettuce and carrots!
