Jim--I'm with you in the grumpiness of old men, being one myself. Squirrels are the mammalian equivalent of mosquitoes as pests. Chipmunks--not so bad--smaller, Can't dig as deep. Gonna plant some more Anemone blanda, each with its own piece of limestone. and then step on the soil so it doesn't yield too readily to little clawed feet. I've soaked them to fatten them (the tubers, that is.) Meditation isn't doing it this morning.
