Wildflower Gardening In Middle Tennessee
I suppose we must admire their dexterity. I for one find little else to please me, for one of those fluffy tailed critters is tearing out my insulation and causing pipes to freeze... a constant battle just now. Perhaps if I make an offering such as yours! Thanks for the inspiration Gail! ... and the fun in seeing this! Carol
I hope you will be as nimble when you get your surgery over with. Best of luck.
Squirrels aggravate me to know...they are very entertaining though!! Hope your surgery goes fine and you recover quickly, the garden is calling..
That one is a smarty pants, deserving of the hoopla and stardom! You are held close in our thoughts today, a mental cocoon to keep you safe.Frances
I see there is entertainment for you other than what is on TV, maybe I could ship you the family living under my eaves. Please have the happiest and healthiest of new years.
I know if you keep feeding them..... ;-) Happy New Year to you.
My friends, They are horribly aggravating creatures~~I know! Destructive is a mild word...I am trying to keep them busy and away from plantings right now. Thanks so much for your kind thoughts~ I am drinking my last waters and the recommended Mountain Dew for a caffeine buzz. Yikes it has real sugar in it! gail
Gail, I know they are destructive creatures,but...I love to watch them at play. Your photos are enchanting.Best of wishes for your surgery. And a VERY speedy recovery. We will be thinking of you. :)
I love squirrels. They don't seem to do the damage in my garden that they do in others. They dig in my lawn, but I don't care. They don't mess with my beds... squirrels rule!
The antics of squirrels, better than any circus.Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
Ha, ha, enjoyed the display of acrobatics! I wish I were as nimble:)Hope your friend returns to entertain you while you are recovering from surgery, Gail. Wishes for a speedy recovery and a Happy New Year!
Hi Gail, wishing you all the best for your surgery and a swift recovery. I'mm sure the little chap in the photos will keep you entertained if you are stuck in the house for a while.
This was hilarious, Gail! My sister has a squirrel that moved into one of her birdhouses, nibbling out the hole entryway to enlarge it. She doesn't mind, as the squirrel family is quite amusing--so far. I don't have squirrel problems but there is something living inside one wall at our house, and the cats can't get to it, so I don't know what we're going to do.
At least you will have some interesting entertainment while you are recuperating.Amazingly determined.Jen
Aloof?? :)When I was a kid there was a resident squirrel who used to lay under the lawn chairs with us (the first time the squirrel approached I wondered if it was rabid lol) and play with out Cairn Terrier (who obviously wasn't living up to her huntery heritage). I always wondered if the squirrel was hand-raised or just very friendly. If he or she was hand-raised it wasn't by any of our immediate neighbors.Hilarious post btw. :) Squirrels can be annoying but they sure are smart and entertaining.
PS I hope your surgery goes well and best wishes for a quick recovery!
Hours of entertainment. I hope your surgery goes well.
Dear Gail.....you can always rely on squirrels for entertainment. You captured him beautifully with your camera......well done.I only have two squirrels in my gardens.....they are digging up acorns at the moment......little mounds of earth everywhere.BTW you have won my giveaway....I shall announce it next time I post. If you would like to email me your address: email@example.comI will post the book to you in a week or so......Hope all goes well with your op......
Great! I think some of your acrobats visited our back yard recently. Love watching them!I want to thank you Gail for your comments on my blog and wish you a Healthy and Happy New Year!
Gack!!! We have at least three super-fat squirrels who are trying to weigh down our cabin feeder and knock down our tube feeders. This is what happens when you're down to one outside cat!
Hilarious!! I can't wait to see more! I hope your surgery goes well and you're back in the garden and at the computer in no time!
I have some equally acrobatic squirrels in my garden - Some feeders I let them get to but others I hang 2litre pop bottles above and this stops them
What a cutie! These captions were hysterical. :))
Gail, glad to see you have entertainment this winter. LOL. If there is a way they will find it to the seed. Mine is the raccoons though instead of the squirrels. I have plenty of them but thank goodness they have not found the feeders or are to afraid to come close to the house. Now since I mentioned they probably will just have to show me up.;-) Have a wonderful 2010 filled with your heart's desire.
Wishing you the best with your thumb surgery and a speedy, painless recovery. If you keep on with these entertaining squirrel posts, I'm going to start liking the destructive little creatures. We had one in the attic a few years back so I'm not much of a fan these days. Look forward to your return to blogging. donna
I keep reading more tricks to keep squirrels out of the birdseed . . . but it looks like your resident is especially motivated! We don't have enough big trees in our newish neighborhood to have any squirrels about, but I'm sure they'll show up in a few years as the baby trees mature.
Hello Gail,Squirrels are one of my favorite little animals. What a daredevil your little friend is...
This is too funny!
Hoo-boy! Your surgery was today. Prayers for your complete and excellent healing. Just enjoy the acrobatics of the squirrels the rest of us - No acrobatics for YOU! ;-)xxx
Hi Gail, It's a circus out there! What a feller won't do for a free meal. :) Happy New Year.
How lovely Gail well done did you use the sport mode, what an amazing acrobat. I wish you a Happy New Year Gail!Hugs and Blessings/ Tyra
LOL! Gail, you need a baffle on that pole! As entertaining as they are, they are stealing from poor little birds.Happy New Year!Cameron
Gail, just wanted to wish you the very best of the new year, 2010. See you then!
You are dedicated posting before surgery! I thought this was the feeder that was supposed to be "squirrel proof??" Maybe there is no such thing?! You have to admit it is amusing even if you are trying to thwart them. Happiest New Year wishes to you Gail. I hope your surgery went well and you will be back in the garden (and at the keyboard) soon.
Too cute! Squirrels are better fun than paying to go to a circus. Hope your surgery goes well and that recovery is speedy!
Squirrels are so cute in somebody else garden; I am lucky I don’t have any in my garden

Spiderman has nothing on this fewl. Gail, best of luck with your thumbs and your surgery. Get yourself well - that's an order. ;-)
LOL - they are amazing, adorable, and entertaining little creatures, even if they do often vex me with their destructiveness in the garden.
What a little stinker her is! We have no squirrels in our neighborhood, can you believe it? It's a new sub, and the trees are too small!
Интересно написано....но многое остается непонятнымb
Such a cutie - we don't have squirrels, the equivalent here is possums = but they are nocturnal so a bit harder to watch and photograph.
I will not approve on it. I over precise post. Particularly the title attracted me to study the intact story.
