They worked hard on getting this nest to stick
The nest has survived thus far through the winter
and  I am certain that there is something going on up there
oh woe....more squirrels
It must be the peanuts I hand out
But on these long winter days, I am truly grateful
for their antics
they keep me looking
they make me laugh when I find very little reason to
in my own private world of winter
here's hoping for spring
and all the promise and hope
for beginnings
again

  2. Ooooooh....that sounds like fun:) I've never seen a baby squirrel before:) There's always something going on in the garden. I have a hummer making a nest and my heart skipped a beat. She's been with me for several months now and one of my "friends" that waits for me to switch out the juice in the feeder. Now she's going to make a nest to raise her little ones:) If they are little squirrels, I want pics!!:) Hugs. Me

  4. That's quite the condo they've built!! Squirrels and their antics are a lot of fun, but I just hope they don't start chucking things at you--They did to me when I found them living in the attic of our last house and tried to evict them! :-)

  6. My parents enjoyed a couple of squirrels in their backyard tree. One day, as I walked in for a visit, Mom said, "Honey, would you believe your daddy is buying shelled pecans for the squirrels?" We thought that was funny. I don't know what the squirrels thought..lol.

    You have a nice garden with interesting occupants.

  7. That must be some nest to withstand the winter weather. I have lots of squirrels, too, but I can't figure out where their nest is. They entertain the cats by eating out of the bird feeders.
