Thanks for the tip..So glad you got rain, hope it helps on the wildfire. Flowers bring in the bees and sometimes those hard working little critters need all the help they can get.
Cats do seem to prefer the soft worked up dirt in flower beds and gardens. It matters not to them that we don’t appreciate their gifts. We once lived next to a cat hoarder and the cats pooped all in my garden. I was so mad! I bought several boxes of plastic forks and stuck them in the ground, points up. There was nowhere the durned cats could squat without sticking their patooties on a fork, so the gifts stopped. LOL LOL
