I’ve been puttering in my backyard! I love watching the birds and squirrels and we are trying to become butterfly and bee friendly.
Most of the pieces are in place-flowers and plants and water dishes for the birds and squirrels. Well to be totally honest these items are for my enjoyment and pleasure…. and sometimes anxiety ensues.
I found damaged plants
killing thoughts were entertained-
almost destroyed by a rat*
they hunt for buried treasure
*A squirrel is a rat with a fluffy tail. 😄
