Too much new damage this morning, to the water lily patch, for it to have been done by turtles. Has to be a muskrat. And at the rate it is going, I fear the lily patch will be completely destroyed in a couple more weeks.
So, off I go, this morning, to our local Tractor Supply Co, or Lowes, to purchase a muskrat trap. Neat. Never done that before. (Or maybe my son will loan me one of his – if he still has any)
