Hello All---

Hubby has been having problems with the squirrels chewing on his ripe tomatoes! This morning I spotted this out on a pile of planks in the back yard. It appeared they were using the planks as their 'table'! I snapped a picture anyway. I thought I'd go back out later and get a clearer picture. But, when I went back out, the rest of it was gone! Maybe they saw me and thought I'd take their lunch. Be sure to really look at the picture. It looks like they were scupturing. It sure looks like a chicken on its nest. You think?

And, here is a picture of Fall from our front yard.

    I agree - it looks like a chicken on a BIG nest! I had a squirrel that used to chatter outside our second floor window, begging for peanuts, because dh had started giving some to them. One day we were out of peanuts, but dh decided they might like peanut butter. So he put some on a cracker & put it on the window ledge. Boy, that little bugger went crazy! He proceeded to lick off the PB & throw the cracker away, then started fussing for more! He never did decide to eat the cracker! We figured it was better to just give him peanuts or nothing after that.....

    I had rabbits & birds get to our garden when I lived in GA, in addition to the squirrels - never saw any rats, but we probably had other critters out there too!

    I love your flowers - my favorite color!

    Darn squirrels but I suppose they have to eat, too. Still, wonderful tomatoes are so hard to find that it's awful to see the critters use them as a sculpture medium.

    Cute chicken sculpture! Good thing you caught it when you did. I liked squirrels at the lake but the ones in our yard pick the walnut tree clean and then bury them in the middle of the yard!!!

    Pretty mums by the way. I like the color.

    Squirrels and rats ... the bane of backyard gardeners! The ones in my garden not only ate my tomatoes but they bored golf-size holes in my melons. A curse on all of them!!
