Re: Outrage!

You're right, of course, Kitty.  We don't really battle nature.
In fact we're pretty nature friendly - organic gardeners, feed
lots of birds, etc.  I have had to adjust my gardening habits
to accommodate deer.  I've given up trying to have a lawn 
because of run-off to the pond, etc.  All sorts of nature-
friendly things.  It's just that times like this morning it seems
as if we can't do anything right.  Here, we've been going to
great lengths to protect the baby wrens on our screen
porch, and everything I've done is disrupted.  Sorry for my
rant, but it's very annoying to say the least.

I'm sorry this happened.  I remember my outrage after a skunk went through
my yard once, but nothing as severe as your experience.  Did you ever have
problems with these planters before?
Perhaps I shouldn't say it, but as gardeners, I don't think we should
"battle" nature. We need to work with it.  Easy for me to say, I live in an
older subdivision that doesn't have a lot of wildlife, just raccoons and
possums and rabbits.  I eliminated all but one birdfeeder which is foolproof
and the cats keep the rabbits at bay.  However, I would love to live where
there is more wildlife and would probably grumble while adjusting my
gardening practices to outwit them.  But "battle" just seems so anti-nature.
