Garden Tuesday Visitor

My boys carved their Halloween pumpkins during the power outage, and they are still on my terrace.  At least, they're mostly there.  And they are attracting a tourist.


These pictures were taken from inside, of course, with a zoom lens, from about 30 feet away.  After snacking for a little while, the visitor got rather possessive about his find.

And, yes, you do notice in the background that our snow is all melted.  I'm not shedding any tears.

Happy Garden Tuesday, everyone!

What a banquet for the fuzzy one. We're still waiting for snow.

Thanks Marjie! Now I don't have to feel guilty about my pumpkin collapsing on Mugsy's sand bucket. I'm feeding the squirrels so Sissy always has visual fodder!

So cute! Your photo would be perfect on a fall greeting card!

Didn't know squirrels like pumpkin. I'll leave mine out next year. Unfortunately our snow has not melted :)

I still like squirrels, even if they are just super furry rats! Glad somebody enjoyed the pumpkin. g

I must say I am happy that we have not seen squirrels here. We feed the birds in winter and I can well do without thieves out there! Have a great Christmas and New Year. Diane

Howdy Marjie, what a cute little squirrel. We don't know much about them but they sure are cute to look at. No worries, and love, Carol
