Garden in a City Home

We were invited to a luncheon at an elderly couples home on Saturday. They wanted to show me the rose plant that I gave them last December for their 50th anniversary. He is a Horticulturist and loves plants. I thought the rose in December was perfect. The colour delightful.
He had divided the plant and it was amazing on their patio. But was even more amazing was his city yard.
Not a square inch did not have a plant or pot on it.
Such a contrast to all the land we need to cultivate, to they knowing their limits. However he is having a real issue with a ground hog. Guess we all have our gardening problems!

It might be small, but it's so pretty! Reminds me of my grandmother's back yard when I was growing up.

Yes, we have raccoons now that we are surrounded by corn crops this year.

so beautiful! We are having a terrible problem with squirrels in our city garden. They are taking every tomato we have, and then today they chewed up my daughter's little wooden birdhouse.

Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins
to protect against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any recommendations?
