I protected my hydrangea plants with chicken wire to prevent my
chickens from damaging them by jumping on the delicate branches.
I replanted the bulbs the chickens scratched out of the soil.

White-marked tussock moth was first discovered in 1797, and the four white
toothbrush-like tufts on its back can cause allergic reactions.

Lottie and I enjoyed observing and watching this creature
crawl around our hands and tickle our arms.
