Rabbit sighting

I saw the little rabbit this morning. He has tripled in size but hasn't reached full growth yet. He hopped around the planting beds and nibbled on a few treats. Not enough to make him a pest, just a little cutie. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to get a picture. He is still very shy and runs at the slightest noise.

Our littlest rabbit is the size of a medium potato when he sits in a spot chosen for him by his mom. Really, really cute. But I am still losing so much plant material to the teenage rabbits that I am toying with the idea of scattering mothballs around the flowers. I remember doing that in Jasper to foil the bears. The skewers that are used for Greek meat in Vancouver are not enough to deter the frisky teenagers here. Even if they are not eating the plant they are breaking it off, as happened yesterday with some nasturtiums just ready to bloom. DANG!!

I'd be interested to know if the mothballs work on rabbits. You have such pretty plants that it would be a shame if the rabbits ate them all. At least you don't have deer around. They eat twice as much and carry fleas as well.

I had a squirrel take a big red strawberry out of my patch today. He climbed the deck railing and sat on top eating the berry. I didn't know that squirrels ate berries, but apparently they do. The berries are getting a little ripe now so any birds or critters that eat them probably get a little alcoholic buzz going.

Maybe I'll nickname the squirrel "boozer".
