@%*#! Rabbits

At least, I think it was rabbits...

Remember how I went back to MN and dug up some flowers? Mom had dug some plants up for me and sent them back with me in whatever containers she found that seemed to fit the bill. I had some pots with, but they seemed to fit better in these shoe boxes. If you think that's funny, you should see what I brought my peonies home in! (Well, at least one of them)

Well, here is a picture of them before I had nestled them into their new home. Aren't they lovely? The purple and white bunch from the red and black box was placed in a green planter. The other box of the variety of flowers was in the cedar planter.

It has been almost a month, so all of them were alive with vibrant color adding charm and color to some dull areas with otherwise no color.

I wish I had taken a picture of them yesterday, they were glorious! Alive with a riot of purples and yellows of almost every shade. I don't think too many of them looked like the parent flowers I had bought a few years ago.

When I went to bring Peanut out to the bus stop this morning, all that was left were the stems! I suppose there are a few petals left.... ARGH! Well, I suppose they can re-bloom, but it's the principle of the matter. I want them to re-seed again like they have each and every year since I first started buying pansies. Is that even possible if the bunnies keep eating them though? If those silly beasts keep at it, I will have to put them in some hanging baskets so they can't reach the poor plants.

Well, I don't think it was the deer anyway, but I suppose it could be just about anything.... If they still get eaten in the baskets I guess we will know it wasn't the bunnies after all!

I was hoping that at least one of the two clumps had been left untouched. Nope! This clump was almost pure purple and seeing to be doing wonderfully over by my new shade garden area.

I guess I've got more work to do today. Will it ever end?

Thank you for stopping by. Please leave me a message and a backlink. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
