Squirrel antics

Visible to anyone in the world
Well how was I supposed to know that the squirrel would bring along his friends to feast on the bird food in our garden? My husband and I thought it was just the one who was just greedy and kept coming back for me but no, it turns out there are three and they have been taking it in turns. We caught them by surprise one afternoon, they must have assumed we were out. As we entered the back garden we saw all three of them were hanging upside down one on each of the three feeders. We all stopped dead in our tracks and looked at each other wondering what we should do next. Hubby went to get his phone out to take a picture as they looked so comical but they were obviously upset about being caught red handed and, with a flick of their tails and a tsk tsk they were off, scampering across the grass and darting up the trees at the back of the garden.

What a difference a day makes

Visible to anyone in the world

Yesterday I  sat in the garden with the sun on my face catching the last of the summer sunshine. I shared  a Mediterranean lunch with my husband, drank wine and read the newspaper. Today, by contrast is grey and wet. It's still quite warm so I have the French doors open onto the garden where I can listen to the rain and watch the birds on the feeder. Scrub that, I meant watch the squirrel on the feeder. It's entertaining watching him bound across the grass, climb the fence and then hang upside down on the feeder, it's like watching the rodent version of Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible.
