If you plant plants — especially native plants — the wildlife will come. Even here, in the midst of a lawn-dominated suburban development, my little garden attracts a slew of wild critters that I’m mostly happy about (let’s not mention the hungry deer). Already this spring, I’ve spotted snakes and skinks and dragonflies. There’s a whole host of bees and butterflies and other six-legged creatures. And, the bluebirds, chickadees and titmice all fledged chicks in the past few weeks. Out back, a nest of house wrens is just about ready to take flight.

It’s pretty great:

Do you have wild critters setting up house in your garden? Any favorites? Any you’d like to get rid of? And, uh, any advice about controlling hungry deer?
