Lilies

I just love Asiatic Lilies and this year I actually have some that haven’t been eaten up by the bunnies. I’ve had these lilies for at least five years, but, I couldn’t remember what color they were because the bunnies would start chewing and chewing and chewing. They would start at the leaves and then when those were all gone they would move up to the stalks.

This year I got smart and sprayed them with a mix that I made. I don’t want to hurt the bunnies I just wanted to deter them. So I made a mix of hot pepper sauce, and a little liquid dish soap, and put it in a small spray bottle. It worked like a dream!!

P1000681 This year my Columbine has spread quit abundantly; and I think that’s helped out a bit also. It’s a little too dense for the bunnies to get around in there now.

P1000682 Here’s a side view, they rest right up next to the deck where the bunnies live.  I sprayed them mostly down at ground level, and there are no leaves missing (yet)!! The only real set back is that when it rains, or if I water, they have to be resprayed. (The spray seems to last a while in the fridge though.)

P1000684 These are from the front yard and are a smaller variety. I’m so excited about all of the early summer flowers.

Enjoy the beauty~bam
