I could tell that the rabbits had returned by the immense piles of rabbit shit that adorn the back yard. I don't think it helps that we are sandwiched between two homes that own dogs. I am sure they see this as a kind of refuge: safe from dogs and in the presence of a 3 year old girl, they surely won't kill me.
Little do they know that the 3 year old is NOT always home and my Fuddian instincts are kicking in due to the teeth marks all over my lilac bushes and not a single leaf bud to be found. The massive piles of deification doesn't help their cause either.
Unlike last year, I actually have plants that I put into the ground with my own hands that I care about. This thing better tread lightly or it is Fatal Instinct Surprise!!!
