Now there are definitely times that I think Rick has been hanging around with slugs, but I strongly suspect that they are of the two-legged variety. I doubt he would be eating my plants because of his general aversion to any food that might be good for him - and plants would remind him of spinach, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, onions, turnips and brussel-sprouts, none of which he would eat, short of being in prison. When they make flowers that taste like cheese fondue, lasagna, and lobster, then he might be on my suspect list.
Seriously 'catters, thanks so much for the suggestions. I do appreciate them.
