When I go out to water the garden in the morning the
back yard is quiet and peaceful.
Sleepy, furry helpers come out of their shady sleeping spots.
They say hello, drink from the bird bath as I fill it up,
and get a belly scratch while I'm out there!
But their favorite thing is to attack the big long snake (hose)
while I'm watering everything!
Some of them are very serious about protecting the garden.
