See him by the trampoline? We have some large, mature trees at the bottom of the garden and he lives in one of them. We also have a hazel tree so he has been busy collecting the nuts and storing them for the winter - I've been sat here watching him collect them in his mouth:
....before searching for a few moments for the perfect spot - he then digs a little hole, firmly pushes the nut in and then pats it down,
He has the most *fabulous* thick, bushy tale I have ever seen on a squirrel!!:
Isn't he just lovely? And especially lovely that I can sit in my house and watch him from the window!!
I finally chose a hotel for my birthday weekend next week, we went for somewhere in Swanage as Mr G says the surprise "thing" he has booked is late afternoon and evening so staying actually in Swanage is probably best. Mr G refuses to tell me what the "surprise" is, the clues I have are:
- It needed to be booked
- It was expensive
- I can wear a nice frock to do it
I'm thinking some kind of meal or something, but I don't know what that could be in Swanage - Mr G also says if I Google and find out he'll be cross so if any of you lovelies have a clue best not tell me!!
We've been busy painting furniture here this weekend - the French style drawers sold in 24 hours so we have been "restocking", lol!!
Hope you're having a nice one....
