The last few weeks I have been thinking about what I want to do in the spring to add some color to my place.
These little critters are playing a large part in my decision making. There are so many food sources in my area that it is impossible to keep them away. I love them and they give me many laughs with their antics, but they limit me to what I can do in my yard for color.
Those little faces are just so cute, but don’t let them fool you. They can do plenty of mischief.
It is no use planting seeds or bulbs. I tried that one year and they dug them up, ate them or toted them off where they could not be replanted. They even dug up the tomato plants, I replanted some of them and they just kept digging them up, so I gave up.
If I want color in my yard it will have to be in the form of flowering shrubs. I already have some of those, but I really wanted to have some potted plants on the porch this year.
Watching and waiting for me to leave the window so he can go tackle the birdfeeder to see if he can figure out a way to get to the food. Squirrel proof feeder and baffle caused his effort to be for naught.
So, with all the cute critters and no chance of them leaving I have decided to just have house plants. I have not had any plants inside for many years. I was too busy in years past to care for them. I am looking forward to having some again. I hope I have good luck with them.
I will continue to enjoy the flowering shrubs in the yard and hopefully have beautiful plants inside to enjoy.
