Purloined!

It's what I get for bragging.

Just the other day I was telling Araignee that the bunnies hadn't bothered with my garden - it must be the carrots I feed them...

Well remember this strawberry? So close to ripening that my mouth was watering just thinking about it? (You can tell where this is going can't you?)
Well, I went to check on it yesterday because it should have been just perfect... and...
Yup. The two white berries beside it were gone too...

Now to be fair to Mr. Bunbun (not that I should, but the little suckers are just too cute), I think he was actually going for the (possibly fake) wild strawberry leaves right beside it...
... and those juicy berries were either just too good to resist or collateral damage. He ate that (likely) weed right down. And when you consider how close the real strawberry was
It might have been accidental fruiticide...

The saving grace is there are tonnes more berries coming. But, I think I may just go find some marigold plants to place around the garden border - apparently they make good Bunbun repellent.

Chicken wire? We just lined our backyard with chicken wire to frustrate the raccoons. Now that the grass is growing through it, it looks okay.

I think Mr. Bunbun should have a little more respect. LOL

After all, you did provide carrots.

Ah. You're more forgiving than I would be. In your place I'd be imagining rabbit stew, with strawberry shortcake for dessert!

Ohhhh noooo! Mr. Bunbun got a delicious summer treat! However, I think I would be getting some border patrol.
