Moat Shark!

Thanks to last night’s thunderstorm, I am now convinced of the effectiveness of the front yard’s half-dug swale, which is now a moat:

And when it comes to my own personal moat, I have two words for y’all: MOAT SHARK!

Somehow, I’m not quite hearing the theme from Jaws.

  1. Very impressive, Lori! And “swale” sounds so environmental. “Ditch”, on the other hand, is kinda hick ;-]Wonder if a real turtle will show up to hang with the shark?Annie at the Transplantable Rose

  2. Scary! BTW 4 inches of rain is quite normal here, we have that on most days. 😦

    Annie – See, this is why I feel like I can't go wrong when I call it a moat, though it is looking a little white trash right now, what with the charred, carbonized remains of a giant tree stump right next to it. Plus, I like the idea of being able to fill a moat with piranhas. Or maybe some ill-tempered sea bass. 😉Yolanda Elizabet – What's a moat without some creatures with big teeth?!! It's too bad we can't swap some weather between Noord Brabant & Texas. Some of our sunny days for some of your rainy days!

    Do you have sentries posted to protect the castle as well? That is a hoot! That’s one way to collect rain water!

  5. Lori says:

    Diana – Well, I did have two super-pointy ‘Bright Edge’ yuccas on either side of the porch, but then I moved’em. But no worries– I’m pretty sure the neighborhood wild beasts (disguised as harmless cats, of course) will be taking up the slack.

    This shark seems to be a falsification, did you poke it with a stick before writing this post ?
