Daily Pics #214.

Good morning and Happy Saturday everyone! It is definitely a cool and wet morning here today, such a difference after yesterday’s warmth. It was too cool for sitting outside this morning so I enjoyed my coffee indoors instead. However, that meant I missed all the fun and frolicking of the chipmunks and squirrels today. I have discovered there are now 7 chipmunks coming for peanuts now, the word is getting out! Some chipmunk is out there advertising this wonderful peanut take-out place. They must talk to each other, how else does the news travel out there to chipmunks that don’t live anywhere near this deck? There is still one other chipmunk that hasn’t discovered the peanuts yet.

That one is a sibling to Coffee, they came together and were often on the hill playing together when they first showed up. Now they chase each other away if they are too close to one another. The other chipmunk is content with staying up on the rock hill gathering natural food for the winter. But he certainly hasn’t grown like Coffee has over the past month. Coffee is still the smallest of my chipmunks though and will stay that way for this year. The new chipmunk, I call him Stubby because half his tail got chopped off somehow like Pocket’s tail, is the same size as the other regulars, Skamper, Skitter and Skatter. The two largest are Pocket and Chester, with little Coffee coming in last. The other little chipmunk I call Rocky since he loves being up on the rock hill. Chipmunks love rocks, there is always lots of great places to hide from danger.

Well, for our pics today a couple of wildflowers that most people call weeds and generally have a great dislike for them. But they are nice and bright and if someone is wanting a nice wildflower look, these are a good addition. The featured image at the top is the “Evening Lychnis”, kind of an odd name but really quite a nice looking and very bright white flower. As it’s name implies, it comes out in the evening, blooms through the night and well into the next morning. Then the flower below is the “Canada Hawkweed” which really isn’t a weed at all, but I guess because it resembles dandelions they added the ‘weed’ into it’s name. It’s actually hard to know why certain names are used. These flowers grow up to about 4 feet (120cm) tall though usually about 2 to 3 feet (60 to 90cm).

I’m very late today due to health. I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
