Strawberry Wars

The Casualties of War

Fallen Heroes
Note the specks of red (strawberry blood) that remained even after watering my garden.
My perimeter was invaded and Rabbit Guard was attacked. Not sure what animal did this but it apparently was not put off by my turtle and bunny statues. This garden savage even managed to smear strawberry guts on one of my soldiers.... Oh the indignity of it all.

This brave bunny lost an ear to a hail storm but still continues to serve with valor.

The Battlefield

In addition to my statuary troops, I also employ the use of spare clay and plastic pots to shield as many of my ripening citizens as possible.

Sweet Victory
Although we sustained some losses, we still managed to yield the best harvest ever.

I'm afraid the same assailant has struck in my garden, attacking my yellow squash.

I hope I can save some of them.

Looks like an attack from opposing forces of bunnies to me. Those varmints are a;ways trying to to steal my strawberries. From the lack of color in the 'fallen', I would speculate it could have been Bunnicula.

Don't you just hate that? I'm glad there were some survivors. (If you can stand the smell, sprinkle some mothballs on the perimeter of your garden. It will help.)
