the various and sundry creations of sylvus tarn
2006 Garden
Year of the Groundhog.

Last year was bad enough, but this year, I have not one but two groundhogs. Plus their offspring, I assume. If they only ate false sunflowers, wood sorrel and creeping charlie, I wouldn't care.

Striptease hosta. Love those subtle stripes!

But they don't. So there isn't much going on in my garden, because these members of the squirrel family are consuming it all. Given the vociferous quarrels the red squirrels (which are dumb enough to run into an unbaited live trap) have been conducting, I'm thinking their ranks need to be thinned a trifle too.

Too bad I have no interest in eating these things.
