So yesterday, I found Merlin... taking a nap in my indoor plant!


He looked so peaceful and content, not to mention cute! I just couldn't move him...

Daffodils and Baby Cucumbers!

Happy Monday fellow garden lovers!! ♥

Spring is almost here... and I can't wait until I can go crazy in the garden! Right now there are beautiful daffodils blooming in random pots (planted back in November)! I love their cheery little faces!

Baby Cucumbers!

In my "office", are baby cucumbers! Along with tomatoes, morning glories, eggplants, orange peppers, peas, and calendulas! They are crowding each other out under the grow light... so I can't wait until I can take them outside!

I think April 14th is generally the last frost date in the Antelope Valley. Just 4 weeks to go! :)

Have you started your Spring garden yet?

And, do you ever start planting before the "official" last frost date? The weather is beautiful... I am so tempted! ;)

Late Night Racoon Invasions!


Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! We've been having backyard visitors! 

Between 9:30 and 10 pm, we often have 2 raccoons prowling around the backyard. They dig up the pansies, break pots, tinker with the water fountain, terrorize my cat, and dip their little paws in the pool!

And they are very bold... they do not seem to be intimidated by humans, or pets!

Jedi says "Whaaaaaat is this?!"

We did some research and found out that they will actually eat cats if given the chance!!! Needless to say, Jedi is staying indoors! Last summer, when the dog door was in use, he would sneak out of the house for late night escapades.  (such a little stinker!!) But not anymore...

One would think that we live in the country... or a forest. But we live in a track home, in the middle of the desert! So, the question is... where did they come from?!? 

Does anyone know if raccoons eat fruits and vegetables?
