Presumed Innocent Rabbit

He Insisted So

Getting outside to do my garden routine early this morning, I found this individual in the middle of the walkway right outside the door.  Seeing me, he froze with a mouthful of Garden Phlox.  When asked, he insisted that he found it.  Claimed that he didn’t chew anything off.   He also insisted that it wasn’t him that had eaten my chrysanthemum by the patio.

Since I didn’t see him actually nab the flowers off the plants, I had to accept his claim of innocence although I wasn’t sure I believed him.  Later this evening, he tried to prove himself by staying in the lawn and munching only on broadleaves.  So I let him be.

    1. I should have created a wanted poster of this guy and posted it around the neighborhood. He’s eating all my Aster now but I have no time to protectively net them until I have another day off.
