Backyard Bandit

My tulips are gone.
My pansies are under attack.
Rounding up the usual suspects.
I found all of these in my garden tonight.

  3. I vote bunny. I know from experience, it's the bunny.

    Unless you see a VOLE.

  4. Becka- Our little critters are so cute!

    OmaLois and Mary...
    That baby bunny had a partner and this is all ground level destruction. But the squirrels ate an entire flat of impatiens flowers last summer that I put in hanging pots, so I am suspicious of them too. My feeders are empty, so maybe they are vengeful!

  7. Oh no--I am especially sensitive to this kind of thievery since I just planted all my flowers.
    I vote bunny too--although Mary's vole suggestion is worth checking. They are NOT related to moles--they are similar to mice, but very plant destructive. They love bulbs. And they zip around, almost out of sight.

  8. I resent that you're all guessing the bunny did it.

    ;-)

    I'm sure he did though!

  9. Better check the remaining leaves for prints.
    That bunny looks shifty.

  11. Lynne- I was hoping it was the squirrel...

    KGMom- Thanks for the info on the Vole. I hope your flowers are left alone. I will have to figure out which flowers are not tasty...perhaps marigolds.

    Laura- I will have to put alfalfa out for them. Maybe they will prefer it to the blooms.

    Susan- Went out to look for prints this morning and found 4 bunnies! They live next door but come here for breakfast.

    Jayne- mystery solved!
