Looking Forward to Summer Gardening?

Way up in the top of this very tall Colorado Blue Spruce live a family of squirrels.....

It seems strange seeing squirrels in our yard ripping off the birdfeeders everyday.....when our dog Windsor Bear was living they were not allowed to step in the yard.....they certainly wouldn't move into this tree!

This morning Mr. Squirrel was busy as usual in our back yard. We still have a lot of winter yet but I am anxious to see if the day lilies my daughter in law gave me will be coming up! I had them in plastic bags for 2 months and didn't get them planted until January 1st - an unusually warm day.(I did put water in the plastic bags) I think they will be fine!

Many Mister Squirrels scamper across my yard as I sit here at my computer. They are constantly ripping off the bird feeders. My day lilies are up about 2 inches. The daffodils are up about 3 inches. I can't wait for spring to be here.

Hello, and thank you for visiting my blog! It's nice to connect!

Squirrels have dug up some of my spring bulbs. I'm not very happy about that!
