When I was Photoshopping this photo, I did notice that the bunnies had already found and munched off some of the tender new leaves (pink arrow). I'm glad they didn't eat the flower though.
Other signs of life in this flower bed: daylilies are coming up!
Speaking of bunnies, here is what those hungry little critters did to the Nanking Cherry shrubs in my backyard.
These shrubs were very close to the trails that the bunnies took back and forth from the evergreen shelters they lived under and I guess the proximity to their homes made it easier than going all the way out into the yard to snack on corn. I'm not sure if these shrubs are going to make it or not. Too bad, because last year was the first time they actually produced fruit and the birds absolutely LOVED those fruits.
I've got some broccoli sprouts!
So far, these are the only sprouts in my attempt to start garden plants indoors, but I'm hoping the other plants won't be too far behind now.
