"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Name My Flower Bandit
My tulips are just about ready to bloom and
I get so excited seeing something I've planted
the year before actually produce
a flower. I say this because ....
...in the past two years, just when my tulip flower
buds were about to open, this little critter
decided to make them his dinner!
I've tried sprinkling red pepper flakes around
the plants, as someone suggested, but
this little guy must wear shoes because it didn't
make one bit of difference in keeping him away.
I think I should name this little guy, because
I am certain he is the same squirrel
every year that comes around
the daylights out of me!
I sure hope in the next few days, that I get
to see my tulips bloom. If I don't, you may hear me screaming.....
Can you feel my frustration?
How do you keep critters away from your flower beds?
Oh and if you think of a good name for my bandit, please let me know in the comment section.
I will come up with a prize for whoever comes up with the best name.
I think I'm gonna camp out in my flower bed tonight!
