As I said, the next morning all my pond plants had fallen over. Again. And this time I noticed that my lovely floating water hyacinths were gone. Vanished. Remember that beauteous purple-leafed plant? Only shreds left by the side of the pond. Alas.
I googled “Raccoons Ate My Water Hyacinths.” Indeed, they did. And climbed over everything else on their way to the water hyacinth feast. This explains the fallen plants. And some recent midnight howling.
I haven’t given up. Now it’s a long battle between me and them. Today I put all the plants in the middle of the pond. Thinking those little bandit-faced suckers won’t be able to reach. I’m relentless, I tell you, relentless.
If I fail, look for more posts on what shoes to wear with navy blue. Or tartan. Wait, what shoes DO you wear with tartan? Hmmm. Good question, even if I succeed with the raccoons. Adding to your identity should mean more “That.” Not no more “This.” Have a lovely weekend.
