The Easter Bunny

You may remember that, last spring, I bought ten David Austin roses.  You may also remember that, within about a week, they had been eaten more or less to the ground, and what hadn’t been eaten had been stripped of all bark.

The obvious culprit was rabbits, and the poor roses have been caged since then.

And you may remember that I’ve now bought a trail camera.

On its first outing, I removed one of the cages, and the camera never lies.  The following images were taken in just a few seconds.  Don’t take any notice of the date stamp – I don’t know how to change it!

So, the wretched little beast snaffled a whole branch and made off with it!

*Grumble*  So, the rose cages are staying on for a bit longer.
