A fashion show of sorts. (Don’t worry I know what’s really going on here.)

 

The fashion house of ‘Mother Nature’, presents the showstopper of the spring collection.

‘Hercules’ is wearing head to toe shades of glorious brown. Blue and red grace the head and neck area, ideal for those who want to stand out in a crowd.Note the iridescent touches everywhere, sure to turn heads at any gathering.

This glorious garb can’t be worn by just anybody. Mother nature is picky about who is worthy and supplies are limited.

(Hercules is new to the game and we think he did a fine job. The same can’t be said for our videographer, Zannyro. The bobbing camera work is inexcusable and she may not be hired again.)

 

 

Is it winter? Is it spring?

Tomorrow brings high winds and thunderstorms, and yet just a week ago we had snow. The squirrels are very wise and they have stayed dressed for winter. They still have their fur coats on. Actually, they leave them on all year, but they do wear layers until summer…(interesting side notes…squirrels are not comfortable in short sleeves, shorts or bathing suits. I have learned this through careful observation and a squirrel who likes to give away squirrel secrets.)DSC_1724 January squirrel 1

I feel the need to advise my fellow humans regarding this squirrel behavior because I know many humans get confused on the issue of seasonal changes.

Here is my advice to all of you who like to run around in shorts and flip-flops as soon as the outside temperature hits 45 degrees…don’t do it. I know, I know, it feels GOOD. The air feels warm and you can almost smell summer after our long winter. The facts are, it isn’t summer, you’ll probably get sick and make me sick and you’ll make me feel stupid for wearing my winter coat.

I’d like to make one more argument for keeping your clothes on…if the squirrels are smart enough to know it’s too early to be going around underdressed …don’t you want to be at LEAST as smart as a squirrel?
