Ecosystem

 One sweet comment suggested I show more garden pictures today.
Well, here are my neighbors lovely stonecrop and pink skirts.
 My cosmos by the climbing hydrangea are going gangbusters....
 Susan's are all over the nieghborhood, so cheerful so social.
This frog was in our friend's garden yesterday.
Maybe if I get a frog I wont have to frog anymore!

Our skunk is making his nightly appearances.
Not one to disturb the delicate suburban ecosystem ...I kind of like him. 
Pie is the first to alert us to his roaming .....she runs across the porch in complete silence and we know why every night around dusk or thereafter. 
Do you have Critters that visit regularly? 


Hoping to finish the second half of my shawl today.

We have a family (or I think two families) of turkeys that wander up and down my street--two adults (I think they're both moms) and seven little turkeys (that now have unfortunately reached the 'awkward' stage and aren't that cute any more).

I'm glad you don't have chickens.. or you wouldn't be glad to have a skunk visit. :-) They are cute, but aren't the best squatters to live under your shed. Ask me how I know. LOL! Love your garden pix! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

We have hummingbirds and foxes that frequent our back yard.

Lovely gardens! My Susans have been going strong since July! I love them. My Sedum is just starting to bloom.
Love that frog!

I have bunnies, birds, feral and neighbors' cats in my yard. While I love cats, I'm not fond of having them use my yard as a litter box and bird-hunting area. :o(

I have noticed a lot more skunks out lately. I close the windows each night when they make their appearance-- do not want that in the house.

We just recently had two skunks coming by! We used to see them all the time, but lately not so much. We have deer (could be the apple I put out for them each night)... we have foxes, raccoons, possums. All kinds of things. And we are right in the middle of a subdivision area! Love your flowers!! Especially the susans!!

Not many critters that aren't that many non domestic critters in my neighborhood. Though I once swear a raccoon wanted to fight me one night on the trash run.

Pretty flowers.

Yes, we live in the swamp. We have LOTS of critters, most of them reptiles or amphibians, but we DO have a family of deer that come by quite often. They can pick a pepper plant clean in NO time. LOL

You do have a way with flower photos. I could reach out and pick one!
We have a nasty old possum and a giant raccoon that come around at night on the deck to see if I have forgotten to pick up the cat bowls before it gets dark. I've threatened them with the broom but they just look at me like "so what". The water bottle does work. I don't want to be mean but I don't want to step on one in the dark. They have sharp looking teeth.

your pink skirts we call cone flowers or echinacea and the stone crop is called sedum. we have a skunk in our court yard of the complex and a ground hog, and a rabbit. I have even seen a turkey and a buck and we don't live rurally at all. they manage to wander through

We ha a couple of baby raccoons up in our pine tree the other night when we came home from choir. Nice garden flowers!
