I am getting a lot of enjoyment from the animals, birds, butterflies, zinnias, sunflowers. We have several baby squirls, lots of birds, lots of butterflies, cat & dog. Some mornings 9 to 11 deer in front yard. Sometimes wild turkeys with 12 babies. Skink family with 4 babies. 2 red fox, 1 coyote, possum, racoon, & rabbit. We have a wren with a birth defect is sings its lungs out but there is no sound. Wood pecker is funny to listen too. The brown thrasher is making a different sound than 2 months ago it sounds like some child flipping a screen door spring over & over. Zinnias & sunflowers are a magnet for several yellow finches and lots of multi color butterflies. Humming bird feeder attracts lots of hummers. Moles tunnels every where. I often set in the shade with a glass of ice water & enjoy the show. I it very rare to have animal problems in the garden. Raccoons like corn when it is ripe for 3 days. Birds peck tomatoes when they are thirsty. Turtles can climb like a squirl over a 4 ft fence to eat tomatoes but I seldom have turtles.
