A Gardening Year

The adventures and misadventures of an heirloom gardener

Wednesday, June 27, 2007


I had high hopes for the surviving Oriental hybrid lilies in the Entry Garden. They are all budded. The squirrels seemed to have lost interest in them. And then I woke up to this today:

Even the hostas are not immune:

Come on, guys. You have your own specially tailored buffet under the birdfeeder in the backyard. I even added unshelled peanuts this year. I’m spending more at Petsmart than at Pathmark.


Give me a break.

Those nasty, pesky squirrels! It's not as if they ate them - just demolished it for no good reason. Last year they pulled off all the pears from my tree.

Don't forget to post a poem for Garden Bloggers' Muse Day tomorrow, July 1.

If the squirrels really chewed off the flowers of your hosta and lily they are indeed the nastiest around. Are you sure you don't have deer munching on your plants? The deer love to eat our lily buds and the photo of the hosta looks like a deer clipped the flower head. Check for hoof prints.
