Graden Protectors

So who has someone or something that looks out for your garden as you sleep? We do and heres a pic of her/him ( not sure which) on her perch. A great mouse eater and anything else that suits it's needs. the great horned owl lives in our tree and I get so excited every morning when I look for her and there she is. Ok being sexist she a she to me LOL.

Wow, how cool is that??!!

I got nothing. :lol:

I'm guessing the toads and snakes help control my bug population. I am wanting some kind of sensor activated water devise that turns the sprinkler on when the squirrels show up. I know I've heard of something to keep the deer away on "Ask This Old House".

Great picture, btw.

How beautiful. What a treasure!

I have some really big frogs and robins to take care of the bugs and worms.

They don't help with the neighbors dog though! :evil:

My best garden protectors are wasps. They seem to hover around my shoulders as I go into my plants and lift up the leaves to reveal any worms. If I do find any worms, I'm sure to feed it to them as it'll keep them around.
