One of the other things I commissioned my brother to make me this summer was a squirrel-sized picnic table.
You may have seen them in your facebook feed – pics have been popping up all over the place.
As soon as we got home from his place last month, I set it up on the end of the garden cart. That way I had a good view of the diners from my couch, and they had a lovely view of the garden while they ate.
I didn’t have any peanuts, so I put a little bird seed out for them. They have no problem raiding the feeders, so I figured they’d just love a little bit of easy-to-obtain seed.
I was wrong. The seed sat there, untouched, for weeks.
On grocery day (Friday before last) I finally got a bag of peanuts. I immediately put a few out for them. And I waited… and waited.
FINALLY, on Wednesday, something caught the corner of my eye while I was knitting…
I moved in for a closer view, and of course, he took off. But I settled down and waited, and it wasn’t long before he was back again.
Success at last!
I’m sure he’ll tell all his friend. I see lots of squirrel watching in my future.
