My succulents are still in the garage and doing ok. When ever we have a sunny day (like this one) I open the doors and I swear I can hear them go Ahhh! So I noticed that some of the plants have some shriveling in there leaves. A sign of lack of water. I have not watered them since I put them in here. So I went out and got the hose and started putting a bit of water in the pots that I thought needed it. I was busy doing my chore and since I have a lot of plants under the table I was bent over some other pots with my hose sprinkling away. My face was about 5 inches from a big pot right under me when I looked down at it. I thought to myself, "Is that one of Scout's dog toys in the pot?" And about a second later I jumped up as I realized NOOOO! This is what I saw!
I definitely jumped about 3 feet in the air. This rat must have eaten some bait that we have in bait traps around the house. Yes we have problems with rats, ever since we moved in 15 years ago. So he must have gotten cold and climbed in this pot and hunkered down. Yuk! I waited for Stan to come home and had him get rid of it. Sure freaked me out!
Yeah...things are still alive!
Everybody have a great weekend coming up!
