Bambi is back!

Since I was so busy today, I didn't look at the yard until tonight. That's when I discovered that Bambi had ventured really close to the house and snacked on some more caladiums. That concerns me because in the same bed with these caladiums are hydrangeas, impatiens, and my beautiful pink sweetheart rose. Sunday morning when I went to church, there was Bambi's sibling dead on the side of the road....apparently the victim of a hit and run driver! The mayor is in my Bible Study class, so I told him about it and he promised it would be gone Monday before it started stinking up the neighborhood. It was gone just like he said. Tonight I have moved the lawn chairs by the flower bed to try to save it from the deer and I have put a radio out there with music playing.

Another busy day!

This morning I went to Mom and Dad's to get some garden work done. We hope to plant some fall vegetables, but we have to get some rain or it will be pointless. I have a place all ready for Dad to grow some strawberries. I don't think they will grow here. He's tried before and failed everytime, but he wants to try again. OK! As I was cleaning out the old garden, I was looking through some volunteer watermelon vines and found several little watermelons. Dad was really excited to see them. We hope they will have time to ripen before the first frost. I was covered in dirt, so I came back to my home to shower before going back to take Mom to the dentist. Unfortunately, they were not able to do the work today because she takes coumadine (blood thinner) and she has to lay off it for 3 days before the dentist can pull her tooth. She lost a crown and beneath the crown was all decayed and it will have to be all dug out. She is really dreading it.
