I was trying to catch (photographically) two red squirrels that were running up and down this stone wall yesterday. But I couldn’t do it. They are fast and shy. So this is just a stone wall photo.
Its another sign of spring that the squirrels are “playing tag”. Actually its the squirrel mating season and their antics are wild.
This could be a phenologism to note: plant onion seeds when the squirrels begin chasing.
Other spring signs now are the chickadees have begun singing spring songs, the fur is on the pussy willows, and snow drop buds have emerged.
Tomorrow our area is expecting snow. Our lovely bare ground will be covered with a foot of new snow it seems. Oh well… The kids are hoping for a snow day.
