Squirrel time!


DSC_1647 Finally a Squirrel 1

A picture of a squirrel is long overdue, don’t you agree?

I don’t get many squirrels now that we’ve built the new house. I’m wondering if the fact that the backyard is nothing but big clumps and “clods” of dirt, has something to do with it.

I suppose it feels a little like they enter a new and alien land when they try to scamper across the bumpy surface. Scampering has to be MUCH harder than before.

This spring the yard will be smoothed out and grass will be planted, so maybe they’ll start coming to visit again. I’m not sure why this one braved the alien terrain, but it only came once. Maybe it got blisters on it’s little feet from the difficult journey and they refused to come back. Feet are like that.

  1. Maybe while you were under construction they made other arrangements for food and lodging (you did too). This guy is probably scouting it out to see if they can move back when the weather is better.

    1. This year,unlike others, I can’t take credit for the winter padding. They’re finding food somewhere.

    1. You picked up a cosmic vibe apparently!
      I still have Nia’s amazing hats and just love them.
      I’m eager for spring, if I don’t get too many squirrel visitors, I’m going to try relocating the feeder.
