The critters have taken over
Pete bent down to turn on the sprinklers this morning and found a furry little mole staring him in the face with a, “Who me? No, I didn’t eat through your sprinkler pipes” look on his face. Pete called me over to see him, he was really cute, kind of like a chubby mouse without the ears. I assume he had ears but I think they were tucked away for better sprinkler crawling. Pete wanted to turn the sprinklers on and drown the poor little guy. He doesn’t critters who destroy his sprinklers. I chased him out so he wouldn’t meet a wet demise.
Later I went out to change the sprinkler and the hole where the mole had been hanging out was full of water. I saw bubbles and was afraid that the mole would soon bob to the surface, dead. I used a stick to stir the water up a little and suddenly a big frog jumped out! Luckily the mole must have moved out and a frog moved in. Phew!
