    1. Hi Ann, they only occasionally do but it’s not a problem. We have a problem with carpenter bees and ants instead

  8. Hi Julia –

    What you have done to your small backyard is truly remarkable! Most homeowners would have never saw the potential and vision you had for it. It is beautiful and your own piece of paradise. I hope you get to enjoy many hours out there this summer and beyond.

  9. Beautiful! Great ideas and many thanks for sharing. I love how you have provided such a safe and great looking space for your fur babies so they are always included, too. This is how it should always be. Very safe and able to join the family since they are a huge part of it. I love including large rocks and small boulders for landscaping.
