Another gardening season is on the horizon. I’ve already done a bit of raking and tidying beds, but still a lot to do.

My Hens are turning greener every day, and also producing more and more chicks. However I hope I will be able to keep them as I’ve spotted a squirrel digging them up and taking them away.



Below are my little Sedums also returning for another year. At least the squirrel doesn’t seem to like them. These flowers are really tiny. You can only see them a bit clearer, because I macro them.IMG_8377a.jpg


As you can see below, I still have some cutting back to do. This looks like some Queen Anne’s Lace from last year.

I didn’t manage to get all the cleaning up done at the end of the season, so I need to also do some work on that.

  1. My Mom and Dad live in Illinois and they have a squirrel that does the same thing. I just did the 1st mowing of the lawn today and turned on the sprinkler system. It is finally warming up here in CO. I don’t have any squirrels digging in the yard, but I did kill a foot and a half long bull snake this morning. I like your plants! My Mom has those too. God bless!

    1. Thanks Ryan. I do backyard birding and the squirrels and chipmunks also come and I don’t mind feeding them, but last year I had some beautiful Gerbera Daisies, I would excitedly wait for them to bloom, but the squirrels would come, bite the flower right off the plant, and just leave the stalks. Talk about being angry and sad.๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

    1. Yes, I totally agree. Sorry for taking so long to respond to this. I just found your comment in my spam folder.
