There is evidence that rabbits are still in and around my garden, in spite of the rules I’ve written for them to follow.
I’ve found rabbit droppings in the lawn and there are tulip and crocus leaves clearly eaten by the rabbits. And if that isn’t enough proof, I’ve seen actual rabbits scurrying away as I unexpectedly enter the garden or come around a corner of the house.
My older sister suggested that I might be subconsciously welcoming, even luring, the rabbits to my garden.
How so? I believe I'm innocent. I'm not trying to encourage the rabbits!
But she noted as evidence this rabbit shaped planter that I planted with violas and set out early in the spring.
And this little bunny who sits by the front door, year around.
But if having a little bunny by the front door says “welcome” to the rabbits and lures them to my garden, then why wouldn’t I also have some flying pigs around here?
Because this flying pig is always by the front door, too.
In the back garden, there is just a small rabbit ornament.
It’s hardly noticeable!
But look at my new boot scraper.
There were several different styles of boot scrapers where I bought this. But I chose the one with the rabbits.
Why is that?
Maybe I AM subconsciously trying to lure rabbits to my garden? But why would I do that?
It's almost time for another Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!
The next Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day is just around the corner on Tuesday, April 15th.
Get your taxes done this weekend so that you can relax and enjoy taking pictures of all the blooms in your garden and post them on your blog on Tuesday. Then leave a comment here on my Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day post to provide us with "directions" on how to visit your garden virtually to see what you have blooming in April.
