Well its been so nice here 84 yesterday 86 today I decided to "Clean" my
garden beds. You know get out the leaves. So I got out the leaf blower Big Grin
It started nicely all the leaves going out of my gardens Thumbs up

THEN I started noticing white tags just flying by with the leaves Angry Ok shut
off leaf blower and collect my daylily tags. It seams that the VOLES decided to
dig up my tags while they were eating my daylilies,Iris & peonies over the winter Crying

Hopefully I will be able to figure out what tag goes with what daylily Glare

I HATE voles Grumbling They ate so many plants this winter.

Lesson for the day LOL Make sure tags are tight Before you get out the leaf blower Rolling on the floor laughing

At least you still have the tags! That will help in matching them up!

I used to have a leaf blower. Mine did not work all that well. I wish it would have!

I hate voles too. Think the leaf blower is a great idea for getting leaves off plants.
At least you give us a heads up for what can happen if we don't check the tags
first.

Nasty Nasty Root eating varmints should all go take a big swim in the ocean!! I don't hate many things in this world, but Voles could be right up there at the top of the list.
