They are just like kittens and puppies.. pet them and they will follow you anywhere.

So cute, plus no potty training.

Love those puppies!

RE: These followed me home from Trudy's

No funny! Glad you were able to grab one of the Rainbows End as they didnt last long......

Was nice seeing you again, sorry we were so busy and didnt get much chance to chat.

I did check what you thought was poison ivy at the base of the clematis....they are just the leaves of the clematis. Much different than other clematis leaves.

The newly planted hostas have gotten some nice rains.
Enjoy your hostas!

RE: These followed me home from Trudy's

I wasn't sure about the Ivy.. but my Mom is SO dangerously allergic that I get very uneasy when I see anything in threes... :P

I have to say we could do no better on the weather for transplanting plants.. but wow! have my new ones hit the ground running.. they absolutely didn't ever need tape...and so far the rabbits haven't seen the new ones..

I could tell you a rabbit story that would make your head snap around.. but it was a little permanent for the rabbit.. and it involved 5 robins ATTACKING it !

RE: These followed me home from Trudy's

do they eat much?

RE: These followed me home from Trudy's

The rabbits have been mowing down all my smaller Hosta. They don't touch older Tiaras.. but they just maul the new ones ... and they have eaten all the flowers that were planted as seeds.they took a couple heuchies to the ground... caged them to save them. They ate a few cannas.. don't seem to like those so much? when the season gets later and hotter they get under the bigger plants and cut them off about 3 inches above the ground.. once in awhile they will take as much as a 1/3 of a plant in a couple days...

What really worries me is all the smallish streaked plants I have with only a few leaves.. one snack and they are hurt bad. and they grow like molasses flows...

I have had three dens dug in the open yard and who knows how many hidden ones in and around the place. My biggest problem is the brush pile in the neighbors unkept yard. Everyone around me has dogs and I think they (the rabbits) know my yard is dog free...
