Before I go into the squirrel saga, here is my latest stitchery from Capricorn Quilts. I did the first 4 in blue and decided to do the next 4 in red. I have the next one ready to start stitching on after I finish the little kangaroo stitchery for the Noah's Ark wall hanging. That is almost finished (I worked on it while watching Miss Potter last night).I have 3 pots hanging on the fence in the back yard. In the summer, I usually put geraniums in the pots (or impatiens) and in the winter, pansies. As you can see, in the picture below, the squirrels seem to enjoy these pots. The tree behind the fence is an oak tree and we get tons of acorns in our yard. The squirrels like to save acorns for future meals, and they found a good place to bury them - my flower pots. About a month ago I planted some geraniums in the pots so it would look pretty for the summer. I would come home from work to find one (or more) of the geraniums on the ground. Sometimes they pull it out by the roots, sometimes it looks like they chew it off. I give up!
It looks like he's chewing on the pot in this picture!
This is how my yard looks now. Empty pots! I decided to leave them up so the squirrels can play in them. They seem to enjoy it and we kind of enjoy watching the mischievous little rascals.
Today I am finishing up a baby quilt for a shower tomorrow. I will post it when it is finished. I'm not sure I like it or not.
