    I see that lots of you are sharing photos of your little piece of the world, so here's my favorite part of mine. I didn't think this hydrangea would make it after a unusually frigid winter but it came back better than before.

    I am very unhappy right now. My flowers looked so pretty. I just looked out and saw a groundhog sitting in the middle of my pansy bowl having lunch. He has been eating others too. I plant mostly in containers and they are sitting up on a bench but that isn't detering him from climbing up there and sitting right in the middle, breaking off the plants. Any suggestions?

    Oh and your hydrangea is beautiful. I planted one last year but it didn't bloom. I too was afraid it wouldn't survive the winter. It does have the starts of flowers on it now. Can't wait to see the blooms. I don't even remember what color it is. I guess I'll be surprised.

    That hydrangea is a real beauty. I just love them, but it doesn't get cold enough here for them to do very good.

    Sunflower126, would a live trap work? Relocate him to a safe place he will be happy? Do you have lots of them? I am sorry you have to deal with this. Underground critters are hard to get rid of.

    That is my husband's theory. We also have an ongoing battle with chipmunks digging big holes in the yard and of course the squirrels are always trying to steal the birdseed.

    Ha! Okay, besides that! I once bought a hot chili spray at my garden center that saved our apples from the neighborhood rodents. Or maybe spread cayenne pepper around -- that kept the neighbor's cats out of our flower beds.

    Your corner of the world is very pretty. Good for you.
    It is almost impossible to keep rabbits,squirels,moles,voles,chipmonks and everything else out of gardens, yards and containers with plants.
    All God's creatures need to eat.

    Better watch it PETA will be after all of us. LOL
    I had the same problem one year They can chomp down all your flowers in one night. It is so frustrating.
    Beings that we live in town it is a little hard to shoot the buggers though. So we used the live trap method and dropped them off in some woods out in the country. There were no other homes around so we weren't delivering trouble.
