For the last two summers I’ve growing petunias in pots attached to the rails of the back deck. Last year they were fantastic. This year, not so because of the weird weather we’ve had. This morning (ok, this noon) I discovered a four-inch branch with three perfect blossoms on the floor and I immediately blamed the squirrels for doing it again.

But, I noticed that they hadn’t dug in the pot to bury the sunflower seeds that the steal from the bird feeder in the yard. Then couple of minutes ago, I looked out the door and I discovered a humming bird hovering around the pots visiting each of the pink blossoms. OK, I wasn’t fast enough to get my camera, but I have it ready on the kitchen table if they return.

Yeah, I also feel somewhat bad about mean mouthing the squirrels — especially since the white owl has worked and kept them away from the petunias all summer so far.DSC01463Petunias6:15
