Bunnies=cute......squirrels, not so much...


Bunnies hop, sniff, and look cute...
You might just invite them to a garden party.

SQUIRRELS
you 
would 
not invite
ANYWHERE...

I spent the weekend planting
pretty little flowers
basil,
oregano,
thyme,
mint...

This morning 
while I was out
running errands,
They came...
and did this....






I might 
have to reconsider my 
stand on handguns
my strategy 
on squirrel deterrents.

Apparently they love red pepper,
cayenne, and black pepper,
which I had ground finely,
and sprinkled all over the plants.

I will no longer correct 
my son when he calls them
Tree-Rats.

no smiles.

  1. we don't have squirrels here so I still find them amusing and cute.. probably wouldn't if they'd cause a mess like that...

    Hope you had a lovely easter.. ciao xxx Julie

  2. That would infuriate me! We have squirrels but I don't think they've ever bothered our plants. Maybe because we have so much natural vegetation for them.

  3. Bastards! They eat us out of house and home.
    And drive Diggy crazy.

  4. They are destructive little things, aren't they?

    It makes me wonder why people plant things like nut trees that are open invitations.

  5. Yes, I'm afraid your son is correct.

    George agrees.
