Feeding the locals?

The neighbor that lived behind me had a cute little dog that would hang out on her patio some days.  They moved a few weeks ago and the new owners do not have a dog.

So, now the local critters spend much more time near my back yard - snacking.


I think it's mostly rabbits, because our houses are a bit close together for it to be deer.  Either way, they left the mint alone, but love the hostas!


It was a beautiful day here today, 80's and sunny for a while.  Isn't it amazing how much better everyone's mood is when the weather is so gorgeous?  Even the cat was loving sitting in the window watching the birds flitter around while she chattered with them. So funny to watch.

Nothing more frustrating than unwanted guests coming to dinner.

We have a woodchuck eating our flowers and plants. It makes our elderly neighbors so mad, but I kind of think the little guy is cute. haha

Sprinkle some red pepper flakes around your plants and wow does it do the trick. Or even a spicey red pepper works too. I don't have any problems when I do that.
