i don't know if it is the age of our house, the lack of care it had before we bought it, or maybe the huge field behind us...but we have had more than our fair share of pests lately.
it all started with these little rascals:
(spotted five of these guys headed into my garden at dusk one evening)
have you ever seen the movie elf? i was picturing this scene as justin ran TOWARDS the raccoons (of course i ran in the opposite direction).
then one afternoon watering my roses i came across these nasties:
(aphids all over my roses, sick!)
but don't worry i showed these bugs a thing or two...
what will i discover next?
