Peter and I have been having a bit of a row. He's been eyeing the garden since we first planted. He was never afraid of us, which we should have seen as a bad sign, but he was so cute and he never caused us any trouble... until now. You see him here enjoying my snapdragons. I plant snapdragons purposefully because the deer won't eat them. Apparently, bunnies do. I guess I can excuse him because they are growing outside the garden fence.
About that garden fence.... There is a little gap under the door, so I put some bricks there to close the space up. Just last week I found a brick had been moved. Inside the garden I found some evidence of a munching and tasting party. In the corners it appeared Peter had tried to escape by digging through the quarry process. I say "tried" because that stuff runs pretty deep. I guess he eventually got out the way he came in.
So, I beefed up the bricks. How could he possibly get through that now? Well, you see the one little lone brick on the right? Yeah, he tipped it up on it's end and burrowed underneath the door. What you can't see here is that there are bricks on the other side of the door as well. That is one strong little bun! Now the bricks are stacked a little more securely, so it should be impossibly impassible.
But just the other day, as I strolled in to pick some green beans, I turned around to see that Peter had followed me in! The nerve! I literally chased him around the garden a bit before he scootched out the door.
He's strong, he's smart, and he's a menace, but he's still so dang cute!
