Once again I'm being plagued by baby bunnies.
We have a chain link fence surrounding our front garden / lawn. Last year I added a 15" (37cm) high wood fence all around the bottom and dug in chicken wire in the bad spots, where they regularly tried to dig under.

It’s been a quiet week in Lake Woebegone….
Is that still on the radio?
It’s been a quiet but productive week chez nous….. In spite of taking a day off to tour the inner sanctums of a shopping mall.
