I'd bet on rabbits. They keep hoping they'll get one (a tulip) that tastes good. I've seen them do this to Siberian Iris and new growth on rose bushes, etc. When they get me sufficiently annoyed, they have an accident with small bits of rapidly moving lead. The rabbits do taste good. See Julia Child's "Lapin au sopiquet". Steve Putman There's been a rabbit in the garden the past few nights, and I'm getting on towards annoyed.
