Day 81 – 22nd March – Pulling Up Sticks

Day 81 20180322

No, I’m not moving, despite the meaning of the phrase. However I have quite literally been pulling up sticks. These ones formed the animal deterrent by being stuck en masse into the new flowerbed I created towards the end of last summer. They seem to have done a fairly good job and there’s only been a couple of times where I’ve seen evidence of some digging. The flowers and plants are now establishing themselves and I’m hoping with that with the area having been difficult to walk though, that the foxes and squirrels continue to leave it alone.


Day 77 – March 18th – Pawprints

Day 77 20180318

There was more snow overnight but once it had stopped it was clearly play time for others. I’m not an expect on who’s prints these are, but given the visitors I know I have to the garden they are likely to be either squirrels or foxes. Given the foxes often come out and play at night and the number of them I’m leaning towards them rather than the squirrels, but whatever they were, they were clearly having a lot of fun.
