Coyotes and bobcats and foxes, oh my!

We expect some wildlife in urban settings: squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, even a possum or two.  I've known for years that we had a family of foxes living in our backyard--a brood of kits was born under our deck about 15 years ago.

Looking for something new for your vacation this year? Try your hand at volunteering with the National Trust for a different sort of holiday. This summer I've been taken on as a volunteer at Attingham Park, an 18th Century mansion run by the National Trust. Its location near Shrewsbury in Shropshire is heaven after the heat in Dallas.

Outside plants fare no better. The one exception to this mass slaughter is rosemary.
