Winter Rabbits

It appears that all the snow is making the poor little rabbits who savaged my garden last spring quite hungry. There is so much snow on the ground that the three foot high chicken wire fence around my beloved perennial bed is completely covered over. The rabbits have finally figured out they can walk right over the top of the bed and found the tops of my sedums barely sticking out of the three feet of snow.

This morning I woke up to find the rabbits had dug a foot down into the snow and eaten all the sedums up to that point. I feel bad for them, but hate to think that food like this will keep them around. There is also a growing number of rabbit droppings under my deck.

Don't get to comfy critters...war will be declared in the Spring if you don't leave my perennials alone!
