Normally, I like these little fur balls with their pretty fluffy tails. I even draw them because they are so cute. But, this is enough!
I watched this crime as it happened. But, I was so amazed that I didn't take a picture. I was afraid to open the blinds further for fear of scaring him off.
He ate my marigolds!
Oh, the carnage!
The little beastie sat right on that corner and ate them. At first I thought he was playing "she loves me, she loves me not" as he tossed one petal after another on the ground. But, then, realized he was eating the flower centers.
I know it's been an awfully hot summer and they've been digging up all the pecans they buried last winter, but, MARIGOLDS? Really? It's bad enough they steal my pecan crop, but now my flowers. What's next?
Well, at least a reasonable facsimile.
Are any of you familiar with squirrel habits? Is this normal? Should I be in mortal fear of the little beasties, because they DO seem to be multiplying in this neighborhood? After all, my neighborhood is built in an old pecan orchard. Should I take up arms, make out a police report?
Be on the watch. Secure the borders (of your gardens). Take good pictures to show the police.
And have a safe and happy week,
