Tasty

Someone had a nice meal of hosta. Whoever ate the hosta must have liked it because there were no leaves on the ground. I've tried the leaves and don't get it. Even with oil and vinegar, I don't think I 'd like hosta leaves. I do like rabbit (the probable culprit). Not the kind we have in the yard. Our yard rabbits and all the wildlife that call our yard home are like house guests. And you do not eat your house guests.

I hope you find the culprit guest that ate your lovely plant.

The babies are feeding heavily right now even through the smelly repellants. I found out today that you have to buy a repellant that makes the plant taste bad for the babies.

So far, they have eaten several perennials and two rose bushes to the ground. Yikes!

oh I hate mornings like this. When I lived in deer territory I used to dread the morning walk through the garden and discovering half eaten plants. I'd get so mad and then the deer would wander through and look at me with those big brown eyes and I'd be forced to forgive them....

Aw, Jim, how frustrating! Still, your attitude of restraint toward your "house guests" is admirable. :)

It almost looks like a "bad" pruning job was done. I must admit that I have seen some plants look similar to your hosta when the landscapers are done pruning them ;-)

Oh dear who ever ate all of that must have been so hungry - so much that not a morsel was left behind. Any footprints Jim? I hope they don't make themselves at home in your garden or you'll be out on patrol duty.

Poor little hosta. Glad to know you respect your house guests. : )

Hi Jim, If you don't like the taste of Hosta then I'm sure you wouldn't like the taste of Hosta infused rabbit!
