Whether you love to garden, or you can't be bothered and just want to put something into the ground and forget about it, Candytuft is a plant you should pick up this season at your local
nursery or home improvement store. I'm not a garden "expert" but I am an avid gardener (still learning as I grow - pun intended!) and love sharing what has worked for me. (There's more pictures and details in the blog post, just click the link.) #itching4Spring
I have a pond, and like most people, also have fish. But, did not realize how BAD Raccoons are..I have been "hit" twice, and the loss is devistating if you take pride in your fish like I do. They will come in and "take a bath, while eating sushi". So, we built a cage top for our pond. our pond is small, so this was easier to do, but the same idea can be used for somewhat bigger ponds. This cover was made from bambo stakes and chicken wire, with zip-ties to hold it together. I can
remove it whenever " it's clear ", and I am working in the yard...BUT ALWAYS put it back on at night!!

I had a fountain in my backyard that incorporated a lot of rocks. I had to get rid of it
because the racoons kept rearranging the rocks and in the process of doing so they distroyed the plants in the area. So I gave up and declared them the winner.
