Hi! My name is Skippy, and I'm one of the many squirrels who call this yard home. The human proprietors were outside gardening all weekend, so I decided it was a great opportunity to sneak into their house to do a little blogging!
All squirrels are welcome in the Eastlake Victorian Gardens, as demonstrated here by my pal Zorro.
Look at these great seeds! The humans think they are feeding the birds, but we know better, don't we? Please, help yourself!
Those seeds are making me thirsty. How about you?
You thought that was tasty? You ain't seen nothin' yet! Come, this way...
Lamb's Ear, by the way. Very soft...
Would you look at that! The humans made a bird feeder out of a little bird cage! The birds love it...
And so do I!
This is the life! Don't you agree?
See, even the chipmunks are welcome!
The ground feeder catches the dropped seeds so we don't miss a bite!
Man, I'm thirsty again. Let me take you to the best watering hole this side of Chicago! Over the obstacle course...
There it is! Doesn't that look refreshing?
This place has ambience! They serve all species here.
This looks like the drinking perch for us!
What have the humans done? This used to be one of my favorite trees. I guess it will have to be just a bench now (sigh). Oh well, on to the next feeder...
Zorro! You beat me to it!
Hey, save some for us! That's OK. I know of another feeder...
Uh oh! Caught red-handed! By none other than the great and powerful Seed-Guy! OK, so I've chewed through several finch thistle socks. Big deal!
Seed-Guy says we should use the nice nut box he gave us. Isn't it pretty?
Or, should I say, "was" pretty. The youngsters couldn't figure out how to open the lid (kids these days!) so they started chewing to get at the nuts. Sorry, Seed-Guy!
Some of my fellow squirrels (who shall remain nameless) like to chew things they shouldn't be chewing. Come, let me show you another example... over another obstacle course...
Look at that! Somebody just HAD to get into the garage to hide a nut! Poor Seed-Guy had to cover the hole with some heavy bricks.
Well, that's the grand tour! Hope you enjoyed it!
Want to come back to my place to chill for awhile?
Chew the fat with me and my pals?
I understand, you have to get going. Remember, you're always welcome to my home in the Eastlake Victorian Gardens!
