"But let all who take refuge in You be glad. Let them ever sing for joy. Spread Your protection over them, that those who love Your Name may rejoice in You." (Psalm 51:11)
Man’s best friends, our dog and cat,
Can stomp a garden in nothing flat.
How can we chase our pets away
To let our flowers grow and sway?
The cat will scratch; the dog’s a digger.
My lilies won’t grow any bigger.
What can I do about these pests,
Who think my garden is their nest? c2011 by Linda Ann Nickerson

NOTE: I wrote these lines many years ago in a pique of frustration, having found my most magnificent blooms decapitated in my garden one summer afternoon. What gardener has not sensed the same upon finding beloved blossoms lost in their prime?
