Once again it is time to share some of my wonderful Amarylis bulbs, As I went looking for those to divide I found a deep hole or den dug just at the trunk area of my podacarpus, Drat those Armadillos were at it again in my yard, I cleared mty plants away to share with the nurse/receptionist at my doctors office who loves the beauty that a full showing of red that come in the spring, So then filled in the hole and checked the rest of the yard for more dens or holes, Yes, at the far corner of the yard under the Sago palm fronds( technically my neighbors) I found another Very large and deep den or hole, Which I promptly back filled and placed a couple of concrete pieces on, This all done after I cut away the fronds which are so very disgustingly covered with white scale? Now I am wondering if that 50 foot diagonal distance could be a long run for the Armadillos? Will keep an eye on it. Along with the wooden box trap and vigilance I hope to keep ahead of the Armadillo problem, My wonderful Neighbor said to me " you must have something in your yard that the Armadillos like" Yes" I replied my soil is full of nutrition for lots of night crawlers, And when those Armadillo creatures aren't raising babies there, the lawn looks pretty good, And a Big plus is I have no dogs or cats, Miss the neighbors cat sooty who would hunt the moles and voles then bring them to me for a reward, Well that is about all that is happening right now, Latrer Gators and happy Fall gardening Hurray!
