I had a great time at Balticon–it was just a lovely weekend all around.
I have flowers blooming in my garden and it is awesome–everything is doing well except for my phlox. What I have is phlox paniculata, which can get up to 4 feet tall, but right now it’s about 4 inches tall. And the bunnies find it to be delicious. I currently have clear plastic containers with holes on top with hand weights to prevent blowing away in the hopes that will make the growing plants too difficult for the buns to get at–there’s lots of delicious clover in my yard, come on guys. I think that once the plants get tall enough that they can’t reach the tender new leaves–or at least not all the tender new leaves–it will be fine. I have no idea why the bunnies are going for the phlox and none of the other stuff that’s been planted. It is a mystery.
