New neighbor

We have a new neighbor.  Just recently we have noticed this little fuzzy creature in our orchard and coming up on the deck to sneak old apples.  He/she is very quick and hard to catch a photo of.  We for sure won't get many hazelnuts with a squirrel in the neighborhood.  The blue jays usually get their share too.  But he/she sure is cute!  Take a look and see what you think.

What in the world is that horrid brown looking thing to the left you may be asking yourself......ummm I am embarrassed to say, it is the left over Christmas tree!  Yes, now you know my dark secret, the dead tree is still on my deck!  We have had one pile of brush and boxes burned, but we forgot to get the tree off the deck to add to the fire. 

But isn't the squirrel cute?  :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Yes-the squirrel is very cute! We have lots of them in our neighborhood and they are comical to watch although they tend to not enter our yard often. My guess is they don't appreciate Dante as much as we do.

And at least your tree is out of the house. The small artificial tree in the train room is still up. DH said he'd take it down this weekend but I'm not holding my breath. LOL!

Hi Leslie! Aren't those squirrels so cute to watch? The girls have named this one Tubby. And our Golden Lab, Duke LOVES to chase the squirrel if he gets a chance. But Tubby comes back everyday.

At least your tree is not all brown and nasty looking and it is in the train room! lol
