Butterfly daze.

I’m really going to miss the butterflies when they leave for the winter. The good news is that in the next few weeks, I’ll be planting a bunch of plants that will feed them next summer. I’m actually putting in two “butterfly bushes” and the hummingbirds will love this too.

Don’t look if you don’t like mice.

Meet Georgio…I finally saw, and captured, an image of my birdseed thief!

I opened my window into the woods very quietly and slowly and confronted the beast.

“Hey you!” I bellowed.

“Who me?” Georgia squeaked back.

“Yes YOU!  I’m making a citizen’s arrest…you’ve been a very bad mouse.”

“You have no authority over me, I’m a mouse. I have immunity from human laws.”

I pondered this statement for over an hour. While I pondered, Georgio casually munched on some sunflower seeds…my  sunflower seeds. His lack of respect was disgraceful and frankly insulting. 

I decided to go find my book listing the rules and regulations of the wildlife kingdom…specifically the mouse volume and when I got back to the window, HE WAS GONE! 

I’m contacting my lawyer to see what my options are, in case I run into smarty pants Georgio in the future.
