You will find that you will really miss the "therapy" of crawling around in the flower beds and mindlessly weeding in between the hostas and daylilies and such.

I already miss it because I haven't done any work in the flower beds since early last spring because of all my joint issues.  I will still have some weeding to do but not of the level as before.  I'm having my second knee replacement surgery on Dec. 10 so I'm looking forward to two pain free knees.  Hip replacement in somewhere in my future.  Now, if the doctors would just come up with a way to do spine replacement to cure my stenosis!  But the steroid shots help.  And I foresee squirrel problems if I have a bunch of pots next year.tired_face

Well, Marcia, I cannot guarantee if my Varmint Chaser will work but I certainly had a couple of giggles while I was creating him in my clay studio.  He has googly golden eyes, golden horns and fangs and plenty of little drops to indicate that he's blood-thirsty so he should intimidate something. I scratched up his coat with a toothbrush to give him a rough-and-ready look and I think he'll be ready for action come spring.

I wish you well in the 2020 garden season as you try to outwit the furry invaders.

aww, I don't think he looks mean at all.  More kind of pensive and wistful looking.  I think it's the big open round eyebrows.  He doesn't have Angry Eyes.

Judy, I just got back from Joann's purchasing Christmas fabric for stockings for DD and her family.  Their stockings were ruined in the flood caused by Hurricane Dorian.  While in line at the cutting station I saw a fellow quilt guild member.  She had a cart full of fabric bolts.  She told me about this great pattern for napkins.  She's making tons of them for gifts.  And now I get home and see your link for the same thing!  I guess that means I have to make some.wink

large red petals, smaller red petals, some stuff in the center, drooping on a glass bowl and baked until firm.

Looks like this one is signed .  I love your creativity coming up with original flowers.

I made some of these a few years ago.  They look so nice and are not difficult.    Hope you try them.
