Indoor Surveillance by the Woos.
Are you wondering what we are all watching?
We want to show you, but first Lightning has to sit down. At least he still has a good viewing spot.
We have an intruder!!!
Look at that cheeky tree rat!!! He has been trying to take over our deck. He has been munching on all Mom's flowers and tomato plants. And to think she thought is was US!!! Then when he hears us coming out, he jumps on the deck rail and races up the big tree.
What happened, Mr. Pesky? Did you lose a seed or two?
Just you wait and see!!!
He LOVES the taste of our million bells, and even managed to kill one of the pretty begonias in the center. Mom had to pull it out of there. Next to that pot is one of Mom's tomato plants. So far he has not eaten any of the tomatoes, but Mom is working on a plan to keep him away.
This is the other tomato plant. If you look closely, you can see some red stuff on the leaves. Mom sprinkled some red cayenne pepper on it. Today she is going to get some hot pepper sauce and mix it with water and Dawn dishwashing liquid. She read online that misting the plants with that mixture will deter the squirrel without harming us.
These two planters have penta and lantana plants in them. They started out with lots of beautiful flowers, but then Mom noticed the flowers were all disappearing. Shame on her for thinking it was us. Now she KNOWS who the real culprit is.
Only a few flowers on this one.
And almost none on this one.
Lightning, tell Mom to let me out there. Timber to the rescue!!!
Misty says she will keep watch from the window.
Sheesh, now if only I had my restrictions lifted, I could chase that bugger away for good!!! C'mon, Mom - let me go try!!!
For now, we are going to keep watch from the viewing window. Hey, Mom - who are those three Sibes we see looking back at us?
Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber
