Living Under the Tree

Abby under tree 2013 002What is it about the Christmas tree?  As soon as it’s decorated, and the velvet tree skirt is out, the cat takes up residence underneath it.

Demise of a Mum

Demise of a Mum

Everyone knows that deer eat mums, so I never plant them in my deer-infested yard. Instead, I plant them in pots on my deck one floor above the ground. I was surprised to discover this newly planted mum completely destroyed. It couldn’t have been eaten by a deer. A deer would have had to climb a flight of stairs to get to it and wouldn’t have left all the flower heads strewn about. No, this mum was destroyed by a squirrel.

UPDATE:  Konabianca, handbagged by her science-loving son, is chastened.  Squirrels are not herbivores.  They sometimes eat birds; they are omnivores.
