Rabbits, pottie, used to be a bit of a problem for me. Mostly my garden is walled but the odd rabbit used to come in from next door's open garden. I put in a discreet chicken wire fence that is now obscured by plamts. No more rabbits.
My dear old dog, spike, used to catch them ...never kill them. It's not his way.....and gently hold them in his mouth and I would take them to the Towans behind me. Once a rabbit got Imto my back garden and hid in my pea patch. I quickly assembled a square of cloche sheets around the peas....the silly bunny just stayed in there whilst I did that!.....and then I looked for him. Nowhere to be seen. At last, there he was nestled in bottom corner, same colour as the soil, and absolutely still. Again, he was destined to the Towans. Why did the Almighty create such loveable gentle creatures to be such pests?
