Still here, Mr. Squirrel pants - enough ants and sorrow


Good morning, what took you so long to notice? Mr. Squirrel Pants has figured out the handle to the door, he is so smart. He comes in, checks out the fire place for possible new dwelling, checks out the toy box where the bag of peanuts is kept, and settles in.




A few of our late blooming peonies  gathered before the rain takes them all the way down to the ground. 



 A few tiny ants along for the ride. I guess that one ant signaled her friends and opened most of our buds.
Not as robust as years past, thank you gardeners of insensitive skill...

Anyway, a nice bouquet, for anyone thinking that suicide might be a good idea. Understood.
But please allow your innate curiosity and good will to prevail, there is no next time.
You are loved. Thank you Mary !
Such a loss and a sad reckoning.
You are loved, all of you.
((((((((LOVED)))))))





for Kate and Anthony and all others who have given up the effort.
Dammit.

  1. I'm not sure I could tolerate Mr. Squirrel Pants. As for the rest, too, too sad.

    Your flowers are exquisite. Your squirrel friend is such a cheerful little thing. I would love his visits.

  4. Squirrel Pants comes from a long line of smarty pants fluff tails. I still enjoy the video I have of your jays and squirrels. My sympathy and support to those left behind.

  6. You have a very smart squirrel! And yes, I think maintaining the capacity to enjoy life's small moments of beauty is essential for everyone. Hard to do, sometimes, but essential.

  8. Squirrels are so much more intelligent than we realise - remarkable. So sad for those who gave up.
