Unwanted Guests

Around 9 this morning I was contemplating taking the geranium and the gerbera daisy out for some sun.  We bring them in at night to keep them from being eaten.  It's fortunate that they're in light weight plastic pots.  Then I saw movement out of the corner of my eye.

The javelinas were back.  The one next to the slider was very interested in the plants.  




Jim went out the front door, and the noise startled them so they left.  


Based on this, one might conclude that there will never be blooming plants in the yard.  Too much wildlife!

Update to post:  This morning we noticed the nose prints on the slider.  The arrows are pointing at them.

  1. Wow! I can't believe they were so close to the house! I would think they'd be much more skittish than that. Funny how that one spotted the plants through the door.

  6. Ugh! Javelinas. You might be right - no blooming flowers on the patio with those visitors.

  7. Oh my, those fellows can be so destructive. I can't believe they came right up and pressed their noses against the door. They are bold bunch.
