garden journal

There is always something beautiful to see in the garden. Snow on the forsythia, perhaps cardinals by the autumn pumpkins, and snow on the roof of the old garage today. We bought carrots for the rabbit who has claimed our yard too. Then when the yard is covered with snow, the rabbit does not turn to the cotoneaster for food. We discovered this simple idea a few years ago, and so far so good.

  1. What a wonderful idea. It never occurred to me for whatever reason.
    Thank you for your thoughtful posts.


  2. In a slightly different vein, I put out shelled peanuts along with sunflower seeds and such. The peanuts keep the squirrels happy, and out of the bird feeders.
