Once upon a time…

…there were three Liriope Muscari.

                                                          Pappa Liriope

                                                           Mama  Liriope

                                                       and Baby  Liriope

Actually there were more but this works for the story.

One day while sitting in the warm soil trying to grow, a nibbler came through the fern fronds.

The nibbler tried eating the stems of the Big Daddy Liriope, “Hmmm… rather unctuous with a cacophony of aromas, flavors, and quaffable.”

Tasted next was the Mama Liriope, “Ah, a little more refined, rather leggy and audacious.”

After Mama came  Baby Liriope. “Now this one is amusing, piquant, impertinent and with  a hint of blackberries” and the nibbler ate it all up!

The lady of the house thought it was the gardeners trimming and chopping. The gardeners thought it was the lady, pruning her heart out. They met together, discussed the problem and Zut Alors!

It’s Peter Rabbit!

Just look at the perfect bunny trail.

“Farmer McGreger, Farmer McGreger. What can I do”?

 “Build a fence.”

Did the Wicked Witch of the North put a “Bermuda Triangle Horticulture Spell”on my garden?

  • Randy Hyde - Well, now where is he going to get his Liriope fix?ReplyCancel

    • sandra - Probably the other plants. I’ve heard there is no stoping them. I mean I know of a bunny that even ate the strap of my Vintage Bottega Veneta purse! I mean there are plenty of greens around thy don’t need to attack the brand new ones I just planted!ReplyCancel

  • Carla Fischer - plant more vintage bottega veneta purses? poor bunny…what will he eat? where will he go? and such a cute bunny but then again i don’t have a garden…did the fence work?ReplyCancel

    • Carla Fischer - …actually my indoor garden has 2 nibblers: hector and zoom…my indoor plants and flowers aren’t safe…hector is especially fond of gerbers and once ate a bird of paradise…found out it was poisonous to cats the hard way: $700 weekend vet bill laterReplyCancel

      • sandra - Your cat’s eat plants? Who knew?ReplyCancel

    • sandra - Well, to be honest, we’re going to have to wait and see. I now understand the bunnies can dig a hole inside the fence. Don’t you think we have enough greenery around our place to keep and army of bunnies…Oops, shouldn’t even hint of that..ReplyCancel

  • Sandra Ateca - Hmm….where will the bunny go next for food? Stay tuned for part two?ReplyCancel

    • sandra - I now realize that the reason my Jasmine has been failing and leaves not growing is bunny work. I thought it was a bad plant, nope I now think it’s bunny. I will of course keep everyone updated on these events.ReplyCancel

  • Abbe@This is How I Cook - Well, we have something in common. We are in a rabbit war. My husband, the rabbit catcher, has cordoned off our entire yard. We were gaining on them but now they jump fences and chew through fences and—have babies…ReplyCancel

    • sandra - Abbe-OMG, We’re still at it. We put food in a trap, they eat it and the trap doesn’t close! My sister has put netting over all her plants, she had ducks.Maybe netting will work. We want to catch them and take them to a lovely reservoir far away. So far no luck. Let me know if anything works.ReplyCancel
