Table for two

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.
