The butterfly garden that Jack helped to plant is a nice garden. It has very tall, feathery flowers that you want to touch. I am hoping to get some of the same flowers outside of my living room window.
Right now, there is a gopher trap outside of my living room window. You should see this thing living underneath my front porch. It lumbers around my garden like a seal. Perhaps it really IS a seal. So my neighbor and I set up a cage / trap and covered it with some nearby weeds. Apparently, gophers are smart enough to know that a trap is a bad thing. Hopefully the camouflage will ease its apprehension of eating the nicely served piece of lettuce inside.
