Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Bully Back Overnight!

This is the pot they disastered yesterday.

It's the only one on the deck that had a reservoir at the bottom.

Here's the reservoir access pipe.
I repotted the plants but left out the reservoir and moved the pot.  I don't know if the plants will survive a second upset.

But that wasn't the only pot they attacked.

This one above used to look like this one below which is on the other side of the swing. (See Wordless Wednesday post below.)

I even peppered the pots last night in hopes that would keep them out.  I think I'm losing this fight with nature's critters this year.

Oh, so sad. I hope you find a way to stop them.

Oh my! That's so frustrating. Have you ever heard of a product called Repels-All? I've had trouble with new plants getting dug up and that stuff worked really well. It irritates their nasel passages and they usually leave. You really need to saturate the plants with it but it seemed to work for me. Good luck!

What a shame.... I'm so sorry because I KNOW how frustrating it is... We want to have beautiful gardens and flowers --and for some reason, those critters have other ideas... Dang it...

So Sorry.

I'm going to look for that product today. They hit again last night. Even more damage.

Keep reading. I was hit again last night so new measures are in order.
