HE'S BACK


.....Or he's still around !
Can you see him in the crotch of the tree??





Forgive the picture quality.
They were taken with my cell phone and don't enlarge that well.





Our Albino squirrels.
The talk is that there used to be two.
Albinism is caused by a recessive gene and very rare. 

Have a fun week......

HOW TO KEEP RODENTS OUT OF YOUR BIRD FEEDERS


I finally figured it out !







 I was filling my  feeders and the lid came 
off dumping almost half of the full container on the ground.




 It's like Christmas..






Try as they might,
this squirrel wouldn't let anyone in "his"  box..

 




Do they ever get full?? Where do they put it all??
The chippies left and came back storing their goodies
under the concrete pad that my heat pump compressor sits on.
  



  
All this activity certainly got Max's attention.
I thought his twitching tail was going to come off.






 It'd hard to tell from the picture,
but this is a baby squirrel...a baby anything is cute.






Happy weekend...I hope you are doing something fun !

THE COMEDIAN IN OUR FAMILY



This Hydrangea belongs to my sister and her silly husband.
Four years ago, when they decided to move here ,
this plant was loaded with blossoms.
Since then, it was cut to the ground by our "esteemed" ground crew.
Joe cut it the following year and it hasn't bloomed since.
I guess he has gotten tired of hearing me say
"Stop cutting it ..leave it alone".

SO....

He added some artificial flowers, telling me the night before ,
that this type of Hydrangea just flowers over night
into full blossoms.





Besides being very talented, ( I won't say in what ),
he has quite an imagination.
