I had read the same thing about the owl and have a life-size owl with a head that moves (bobble head). It didn't work where I had put it before. Birds flew right around it on their way into my pole barn.

LOL Dawg! Around here the birds are not intimidated by the fake owls, either. I can almost hear them snickering as they perch right next to them.

I just got back from Home Depot, where I went berserk in their plant and gardening section. I went there for just a few plants. Looks like I'll be planting and transplanting for a while this afternoon.

I just got back from the grocery store in the city. I wish I had picked up some rustic bread.

SO made three 6" carrot cake layers. I cut each layer in half and we make two three layer cakes out of them. We froze one and I'm about to make the cream cheese frosting for the other, which I get to eat!

mmm, carrot cake...

What do you cut cake in half with, a serrated blade like a bread knife?

Perfectly good photo for the purpose. Nice looking plants. Which ones will you be transplanting? The ones with flowers? You know we will want to see them again when they have been transplanted.
