Mystery Solved

Recently our little garden fountain has been in total disarray. Every morning the spigot was lopsided and the stones were strewn every which way. I would carefully restore order only to find the same thing the next morning. Well, this morning the artful disarranger was caught in the act:

We used to have a birdbath, but it couldn't withstand these acrobatics. OK, I promise to fill "your" waterdish if you just please stay off my fountain!

On another note, Sharon gave me this award which I am supposed to pass on to five friends. This is always a difficult task, one with which I can't comply because I consider all of my visitors my friends. So if you wish to claim this award, feel free. Meanwhile, thank you, Sharon, for thinking of me. I hope we can soon meet in person!
Thank You, Sharon

Aren't they the little buggers????? They used to get IN a friend's grill to eat the remains. One day Tony opened the lid and there was a raccoon in there having himself an itty-bitty feast.

aww, he is one thirsty little racoon. It's been hot lately, Judy!

Just one of five actually!

Racoons can be persistent critters. We used to have one that kept coming and trying to get in the containers of bird seed.

What a rascal! We are so lucky that we don't have them here. I'm sure they are close, they just haven't found us yet. I hope they don't ever find us.

Hello Judy!

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I love the new header on yours!

To answer your question: I bought letter stickers. I think at Target! :) Then I just picked the ones I wanted and stuck them on randomly! :)

Raccoons! Eeeeps! They are not friendly critters!

Have a great day!

Hugs,
B.

Ahhh! Silly racoon! I think it's their curiosity more than anything!

Amazing to catch this photo!

Smiles, Cat

Hi Judy - gorgeous plants! I've also not come across the balloon flower before, and the roses are just beautiful. You can probably grow more exotic plants than we can here in the UK, although our weather is definitely changing and we can grow lots more mediterranean plants now as it does seem to be much warmer - but we still get pretty cold weather and the odd snowstorm - which brings everything in London to a standstill!
