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.

More Bullies in the Garden

We both had heard the thump last night but didn't think to investigate.  Oh now I wish we had.

Here's the before:

Here's the after:



This one was just recuperating from June's attack by deer, I thought at the time.  I've given up on anything growing in here this year.


These weren't tipped over or drastically dug up.



This one just needed righting.


The pot is replanted but I don't know if any of the plants will survive.


Those darn bullies.  Not much I can do to keep the raccoons away.

That's definitely a racoon's work. :( Sorry you're having such a hard time with them this year.

Oh Marcia, I am so very very sorry.. Almost makes me cry... What a shame... We have raccoons here --after our bird seed, but they have never bothered any of my potted plants/baskets...

Hugs,
Betsy

Oh, the "after" is so sad! How frustrating. Our raccoons don't bother anything but our cat food. They are not destructive like yours! Between the raccoons and the deer, you are really having a hard time gardening!
