“Hunting me a wabbit!” Aw man, I miss those early Saturday mornings waking up in anticipation of watching Bugs Bunny and all the classics. Remember those days?
Well, times have changed and I no longer am a fan of flippin’ rabbits. Let me explain myself. I love gardening. Not necessarily all the work that is involved but definitely the outcome. Plants, trees, bushes, flowers…greenery and nature, I just can’t get enough of (minus bugs). AND MINUS RABBITS! I mentioned a few blogs back that my lilies were getting ready to bloom and since then they have bloomed! I heart them so much. Mostly because my mom dug them up from her yard and gave them to me. Initially, I was nervous about planting them because we have a lot of deer and I hear deer like lilies. I searched different ways to ward the deer off and after Craig refused to save his urine for me (what?) I decided on this product.
It’s called Liquid Fence. I ordered it online a few months back and it has just been sitting in my garage…until now.
Every time I pull into our driveway, I stop, roll down the window, and admire the small flower bed at the corner of our yard. Funny thing is, it really isn’t even that impressive. I just get all giddy inside when I notice a new flower bloom. Corny? Perhaps. : )
So, this is where the rabbit fits in. Tonight, arriving home from work, I do my usual drive by when I notice a rabbit next to the lilies. “Cute” was my initial thought, but then I notice the “cute” little rabbit has knocked down 2 lily stalks (3 ft tall)!! Grrrrr…..
I yell at the rabbit.
The rabbit just stares at me.
I honk my horn at the rabbit.
Still…staring back at me.
I pull up my hand brake and jump out of my car and literally run the rabbit off.
Immediately, I pull out the Liquid Fence and pour it around all my plants. Ooooooohweeeeee!! That stuff is smelly! I just hope it works (fingers crossed).
Do you gardeners have any tricks or tips to keep away deer and rabbits?
