I wish life were like Disney....where the foxes and bunnies could get along...


I love seeing both the foxes and the bunnies....for the past few years we've had a fox den out in front of our house...last year we were fortunate enough to have 2 fox dens on our property and not that far from each other either....maybe 600 m or so apart....but there were absolutely no rabbits about...none at all....I had a feeling that our resident foxes had decided to move on in the spring when we started seeing bunnies again...first a couple...and now there are hundreds of tiny little bunnies all over....and....at first I was delighted....but I'm noticing that they're eating EVERYTHING they shouldn't be....they're on my deck eating potted plants....I planted roses for my wife in a planter and well they picked the one bush I could find that was labelled as moderate scent (everything else this year was light)....they ate the buds...they ate the leaves....sigh....at least the foxes didn't eat the plants.

Well it's great that you got to see both.  Hope that the foxes come back again to save your plants.

This morning, at 6:15ish,  a fox ran by my door, so it's not that I don't have foxes here,  they are just early risers

Good for her!! I have a Graham Thomas now, obsessed with the blooms.
