Buried Treasure

Sparky the Squirrel 1

Ahoy there, me Hearties! Cap’n Sparky here.

I’m just burying me Treasure in this ‘ere pot.

Sparky the Squirrel 2

I’ll bury it nice and deep so it’ll be safe under this spiky plant until I’ll be needing it again.Β 


I’m sure Sparky’s treasure will be safe there in my pot. I’m just worried about my poor Asparagus fern; since Sparky was really digging down deep into the roots!

    We have had unusual plants growing out of pots that can only have been planted by squirrels. An oak once… the nearest one must be 500m away at least.

    Sparky’s adorable!

    I have Chip, an itty bitty chipmunk that spends all day, everyday, racing back and forth from my garden to the bird feeders (where he fills up his little cheeks). He buries his snacks in the garden, and now that we’ve had some serious rain, I have little clumps of sunflowers sprouting everywhere. 🀣🐿

      haha Well – the fern in the big pot is the new one I bought and it is growing away very happily.
      In front of that, in the smaller pot, is the tiny fern, that is all that was still alive when I killed my first massive fern by not watering it enough during the drought! 😦
      It was one lone twig, but I dug it out and transplanted it – and it’s still growing. πŸ˜€

    This is just too cute! Of all the places Sparky could’ve picked to bury his treasure, it HAD to be in the flower pot holding the asparagus fern!! And btw, that fern is looking terrific….let’s hope it stays that way after all that digging! 😳

      hehe Thank you πŸ™‚
      Yes, Sparky does love to bury his treasure in my flower pots! πŸ˜€
      This is my second fern, but it is doing very well so far.
      The first one died when I didn’t water it enough during the drought. One tiny twig remained alive, so I dug that out and put it in the smaller pot in front of the big pot. Still alive and growing. πŸ™‚
