Little Stinkers

This shot is from my window in my living room looking at my front garden. I tried to get a better shot but the little stinker kept moving.




I think skunks are seriously so pretty. They stick out from all the green with their bold black and white fluffy selves. They are fluffy, and cute....and can cause a passerby to freeze, or run really fast in the opposite direction. I wonder what it would be like to have that kind of effect on people? They must feel so...so...hideous and unwanted. It's their fault really. I mean my goodness my yard (AND HOUSE) smells bad this morning!!


I can get used to poo...even liquid poo. But skunk? blech!!! it just gets up in your nose and into your lungs and does something in there. I think even my food tastes skunky this morning.


Anyway...moving on.


This is my garden. I humbly take pictures this morning to show you (one of my) inadequacies. I think I see sunflowers,a row of spinach, some carrots all bunched together, tomato plants, some beans and peas......and LOTS AND LOTS OF WEEDS. Seriously. Come help me....please.

I'll be right over.
YOu watch the kids, I'll weed.
I do love some weeding.
If only you weren't so far away.
I see Crazy tomorrow, I'll pass on the message.

This isn't an inadequacy - it's a perfectly good garden! There are just a few too many weeds, that's all. When can I come and weed?

Oh - and I love the skunk picture - so cute!

Skunks and porcupines, man, the bane of country existence!! I hate those buggers. The foxes (is that right or is the proper plural also just "fox?"), raccoons, and weasels I can handle, but the other two.... ugh, nasty disease-laden vermin! Death to all!!!!

Okay, sorry, I got a little carried away there. I just really loathe skunks and porcupines.

And if I was in charge of the garden this year, it would look exactly like yours. But this year hubby took over and though I'm more than a little embarrassed to admit it, he's much better at it than I am!!
