Foiling the Wascally Wabbits

Mrs. Barn has been especially plagued this year by the wildlife endemic to our remote mountain retreat, most especially the bunny rabbits coming to nibble off the tops of her flowers in the bed she has been cultivating for many years on the hillside adjacent to the cabin.

To mitigate the problem I made several cylindrical enclosures from 1/2″ hardware cloth to fit over the plants under attack, painted them black to make them less visible and placed them where they needed to be.  In fact they are nearly invisible from a typical viewing distance, and so far they have done their job.

Now we are hoping the deer don’t take a liking to these plants.  That might take, um, a more impactful pyrotechnical response.
