Yep,Jon found out who's been taking the blue marbles from around the fire pit,and spreading them around.It's otters!
He caught them very early,this morning,having a field day with them.He was using his night scope to find out what was going on,and said they were so cute,but scampered off when he finally turned the lights on.I wish we had some type of motion camera that could capture a picture of them.Just for evidence,of course.In case,this should ever go to court.......
We love that they're here,and feel comfortable to come up onto the pool deck but couldn't they at least put the marbles back,when they're done?
We have another perp,too.This neighborhood has gone downhill,I tell ya!
Something(an armadillo)tore up the woodland garden I planted last weekend.Thankfully,Jon replanted eveything before I got home from work.
So,it shall be moth balls spread all around,til the critters learn to leave my stuff alone.It works on raccoons,cats,dogs,and 'possum.I just don't know if it works on armadillos.Guess we're gonna find out.Worth a shot anyways.The down side is the garden will smell like mothballs,until it gets established enough to be able to take the ravages of the wild armadillo.....
On the upside,the weather has been gorgeous,lately.One couldn't ask for more perfect weather.Cool nights,hot days,low humidity.All the plants are starting to come back from the cold and freezes of this past winter.
Why do I have to work?I should be home,playing in the garden.
