Back Home

Bunnies ate my rosebush.

Oh no!

I always lost the impatiens to the rabbits. It always makes me sad to see the stalks of the plants ... and no flowers ...

It wasn't a very big rosebush- quite small, only cost $5.99 at Lowes. But I was so proud of myself for planting and feeding it all on my own. It's one of those "knock-out" roses- supposedly indestructible. I did notice a few tiny leaves on the bottom of the four matchsticks that used to be stalks, so I think it might actually be coming back. So much for my suburban goddess fantasy. I'm much better at fire-escape gardens.

PS they also chomped down on my lemon verbena, peppermint and catnip.

Marie- I'm waiting for a Buffy quote from you . . .

Turkish roses would not have stood for it.
They would have surrounded the bandit bunnies' hideout and starved them out, from both the Asian and the European sides.

A non-Turkish technique is to put a few drops of either fox or bobcat urine on a cloth near the lower parts of the rosebush. My vizier tried it on the new wooden raised vegetable beds and no bunny-destruction has taken place.

Are there places that actually sell bobcat urine?

This is yet another reason why I will never understand the suburbs. I miss my fire-escape.
