Peek-A-Boo!

Sparky 1

I see you!

Sparky 2

Sparky the squirrel is getting very cheeky these days, scampering around my stoep, drinking out of the water bowls and having a little snack while hiding in the safety of the pot plants, next to Mr Bunny!

    I guess I am just an old grouch as I have not cute love for squirrels. I have been on the damage end from them too may times. I currently grease my bird house and feeder poles to keep the squirrels out of them . Sorry

      Yes, they can be a pest – such as when they decided to live in our roof!
      But sitting happily on my stoep – he can be cute. πŸ™‚

      Aw that’s kind of you to help out the freezing squirrels. πŸ™‚
      And yes, global warming is more about extremes of weather.

    Sparky!! Glad to see he’s still a visitor to your yard. So nice of you to leave LM’s bowls out for him and other wildlife. πŸ™‚
    An odd thing I’m following on Instagram… The plight of the grey squirrel in England. In short, England has deemed them ‘invasive’ and if an injured or baby grey is brought to rehab or vet, they get euthanized, no question. :-((((( Good hearted folks are fighting and have gotten a bit of good news with an appeal going through. I don’t know their Gov structure, but I hear that’s good.

      Thank you πŸ™‚
      Yes, I’d emptied the dog bowls because the water quickly goes green in our heat, but then realised all the other wildlife still needed them!
      Oh no! I had no idea about the grey squirrels in UK. How awful. 😦

    Awwww, Sparky is too cute! I think Mr. Bunny is bigger than Sparky! Your potted garden is so pretty, especially those pansies! What a perfect place for this little critter to call home. Everything is just the right size. Lol.

    You must have been really quick with your camera to catch Sparky. Your garden is always a treasure trove of nature and teeming with all sorts of life. Lovely indeedπŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ
