This ‘cute’ little rabbit is one of many that eat our gardens every year. When my flowers and hosta leaves start showing up on the ground because these evil little creatures found their stems ‘tasty’, well, let’s just say that having hawks, weasels, bobcats and coyotes around doesn’t seem so bad. 😉
Find an old birdcage, of any kind, the more interesting the better.
- Paint it if you want. ( a can or two of a good quality of spray paint )
- Take the bottom out, then place it over your plants!
This cage is an interesting and attractive way of protecting a compass plant ( Silphium laciniatum ). Last year we never saw a full leaf. It’s two years old and has 3 leaves now that it’s no longer fine dining for the bunnies.
