I hate those meeces to pieces




Summer arrived today in my garden.  The cold north wind finally turned and there was just a gentle breeze from the south.  The geraniums came out of their temporary indoor nursery and were re-potted into large terracotta pots outside.

The sky was azure blue with not a cloud in sight. Two ring-necked doves were cooing to each other and the scent from the wisteria filled the air.  Butterflies and bees hovered around the blooms.  I stretched out on my sun lounger and thought how wonderful everything was.  The sun got hotter so I opened my sunshade umbrella.



Those bloody mice!

    1. Thank you Yael. Most of the time it's close to perfect but there's always a little bit of trouble in paradise.

  2. That hole looks a bit like a mole! If you squint a bit.

  3. That's peanuts, one winter they got inside our pool's electrical control box. It would have served them right if they'd been electrocuted; or at least died from plastic poisoning!

    1. They're cute little critters but can be so destructive, particularly with wiring.
