Must be lovely to see all your plants coming back to life Lori!

The irises were a little subdued..but considering what they'd been through it's a miracle that they're here and blooming! Bless my cousin, she saved my garden. She lives to the south and her winters aren't as severe as they are here... they survived winter storage with her,so wondering how they'll fare here. I'll try mulching and winter protection..but there are lots of little rodents around... Thought I might just dig them and put them in the basement where it's cool, dark and dry.

Yes, it will be a challenge...but I know you are up to it Lori!

Some days it looks like a mountain...others; it's a mole hill!

Over here they have the reputation of being deer and rabbit proof, but they dont mention squirrels, rats or mice!

Oh dear...squirrels? My lovely Tufty? I keep the squirrel population well supplied with sunflower seeds and cracked corn mix. They are all sleek and lovely looking. Have a large gray which visits occasionally...but he's looking for seeds not my irises thank goodness! They've "squirreled away" enough seed/food to last them two winters! Now, how would I deal with mice...haven't seen any rats yet. Saw a lovely large garter snake yesterday. They usually keep the mice population in check.

We have foxes that keep rats under control and owls for mice and voles, but only a couple of snakes thank goodness. My OH doesnt even like worms much!

We have the huge dew worms who come out at sunset to enjoy a slither thro the wet grass! They are excellent soil producers as they go very deep during the day and come to the surface at night leaving mounds of worm-castings on the soil! If you want to compost passively they are your best friend.

There would be nothing passive about OH's reactions if we had those around! Grass snakes are bad enough..they are worms too I believe.

They may well be ...but these creatures are nobody's enemy! Can't understand why they would be viewed as detrimental. "green" gardeners use them to produce the best compost there is...worm castings!

They are only detrimental to OH's well being Lori..he hates snakes or anything minutely resembling them!

Good Grief! He sounds like my OH. Have to admit that I'm not a big fan of the way snakes move...but they have their niche! spiders, they bother me! I've managed to control that by getting familiar with the large yellow and black garden spiders...they are amazing creatures...but the black fuzzy dock spiders...I'm still zzzhhhhrrr! creepy crawly.
