So far this has been a VERY rainy Spring in the Pacific Northwest but I was starting to feel like it was going to be a good year in terms of fruit, veg and flowers. That was until I went outside today and noticed that some sort of animal decided it was a good idea to hop into my raised beds and just chew off all of the blueberry flowers, not to actually eat them but just because he/she could.
Not only that but the stunning bed of 50+ lilies that have been growing happily and healthily for years is bare. Almost all of them just did not come up this year. This is a very big blow for me, the smell of these amazing lilies over the summer months is now something that will be hugely missed this year. Of the lilies that did come up some have been chewed off, by what I have no idea! I think it could be the rare breed of rabbit in my garden that seems to be able to jump 30 inches into the raised bed. This is quite funny because everything you read says that a rabbit does not jump this high.
