This is what I woke up to this morning. I despise raccoons!! Anyone who thinks they are cute should live in the woods with them a few days. They have dug holes in my mulch, dug up plants, destroyed plant containers and wash their food in the cat's water every night so it is a bowl of mud each morning! Disgusting!
Between them destroying everything they can find and the deer eating all the buds off my day lilies and the leaves of my hydrangeas and hosta, gardening is not much fun anymore. With all this and the addition of nonstop rain this year which has encouraged weeds it has been quite discouraging!
I can't seem to give up though because I love all the beauty!
