Flower Friday (and Foiled Friday)
Just a quickie today as we wanted to share in Dory's last Summer Flower Friday.
Mom said it would be nice if I showed you how good I was this summer with her flower pots. Maybe it was that cinnamon basil she tried to hide in there that kept me away. But the joke was on her - I FOILED Mom - because the cinnamon basil grew like crazy. Every week she had to cut it back. So if you need something that grows big and full and spreads all over the place, try some cinnamon basil. Mom is so encouraged by what a good boy I have been with her flowers that she might even try some tomatoes next year - BOL - she is so naive:)
Speaking of being FOILED, we had a successful hit in the traps. Yes, indeed, that last pic in yesterday's post DID have one of these critters trapped/
This is what a mole looks like. Mom said she would spare you the graphic photo of the catch. Moles sure missed the boat when they were passing out the handsome genes. And look at those claws and that boring snooter!!!
Actually some other critter visited our yard last night while we were all sleeping and just pulled the whole trap out of the ground. (I promise you it wasn't me.) The deaded mole must have been a wee bit too ripe for the visitor because he left it right there in the trap on our lawn. The man from Critter Control stopped by this morning and took it away (all to the tune of a lot of green papers:( ). He reset the trap and left all five traps to see if we have any more tunnel diggers. Mom thinks it may be a case of "one and done".
Wishing you all a Happy Labor Day Weekend. Hope you have lots of fun with family.
