Little critters moved into the greenhouse this winter.
Despite several attempts at location and eviction notices,
I couldn’t get more then a glimpse of the squatters.
Yes, I ran from the greenhouse with a few small screams, more then once!
Several times I brought in reinforcements.
My cats just lounged and cleaned their paws.
Last Saturday, the sun warmed to near 50 degrees and I announced it was ‘the day’,
I was going to find that mouse!
I bravely–stood on the little stool and poked at everything with a garden hoe.
Nothing moved, nothing scurried, no mouse.
Until I opened my toolbox!
How dare they–yes, they–take up residence in my toolbox!
Waiting for the next warm day to decontaminate EVERYTHING.
