CRITTERS WHO GARDEN

Last updated April 3, 2018

Will you agree this is a beautiful sunflower?

It was not planted by myself, Bubba or Flip Flops. That leaves various critters fond of the sunflower seeds Bubba provides in the bird feeder. We know birds and squirrels frequent the bird feeder but have no knowledge of critters who sneak up to the feeder under moonlight. Based on the location of this sunflower, right up next to the wall, I’m guessing that landscape design is not on the critter curriculum of life skills.

I am grateful to have critters who garden as I have enjoyed this bright yellow bloom for days.
