Please, Please, Don't eat My Tulips!!!

I thought about singing Doris' song and appealing to the better nature of those pesky varmints munching in my front yard. But then I realized my neighbours might not appreciate it! So instead, I went to the hardware store yesterday after work, and bought this product. I'll see if this will keep the guilty party(ies) away from my tulip bulbs.

I sprayed it on the remaining leaves and buds last night. Now we wait to see if I get any blooms soon. And for those of you who are worried about God's little creatures being violated by one of God's larger creatures, here's the scoop on Skoot:

Yay! Thanks for stopping by and choosing to follow my blog =)

I'm totally jealous that you live in Nova Scotia. I've wanted to visit ever since I read Anne of Green Gables as a young girl. (When the movies came out, the desire became even greater!)

Love the blog =)
