How many rabbits can you see in this photo? I took the shot and did’t realize that the one on the left was inside of the fence. I watched the one rabbit pull of a lower leaf of the sunflower and eat it instantly. I wouldn’t think they would be so good to eat. The rabbit stood on his hind legs and picked it off easily. I will check and see what the other rabbit was eating. I know they ate early sprouts when the zinnias were coming up but I don’t think they would like a zinnia leaf to eat.
Since I didn’t get this blog finished, I can now say that I have placed the higher screens to keep them out of the zinnia patch. Mr. McGregor would have them for stew by now but I don’t eat rabbits.

The plant definitely had enough water with 7 to 10 inches of rain. My neighbor to the northish direction ,was telling me that her daughter who is three houses over, has an electronic rain gage. She did get the measure of nine plus inches of rain from Saturday night. I also learned from her that the swath at the back of my property does have large drain pipe under it , with drain grates about every three houses. That explains why I haven’t seen a creek running down the hill in the back yard.
The petunias took a beating from the rain but in a couple of days they will be back into order. The plan for the rest of the summer is just to maintain it all.
We are planning for company now from visitors who live in Chicago. The two grandsons will have grown a lot since we last saw them.
Closing the blog down for today, hoping all are well. It is getting to be hot out there.
