Good morning everyone! It’s cool and cloudy this morning, but still beautiful. There are some birds singing, though further away once again. The gulls were here nice and early for their breakfast. The chipmunks started to come as well, but the squirrels have interrupted their breakfast. Jasper, Jasmine and Freddie were here this morning, needless to say there were a lot of “discussions” taking place.
I haven’t seen Freddie for a long time and he didn’t want to leave either. But Jasmine held her ground and Freddie didn’t get any peanuts. I’m not putting any more out right now until those 3 go back home for a while. The chipmunks need some food too. And I don’t want Freddie hanging around, Jasper and Jasmine are fine, but no other squirrels.
By the way, there is still time to get your name in for our new chipmunk! Tomorrow we pick the name for this new little guy, so why not join in the fun? It is a male, naturally. I say that because that’s all I have ever had around here. And yet every year new babies show up, and that means there is a at least one female in the area, and not too far away. And there’s probably more than one. But they never come around, which is odd. Oh well.
Yesterday the new chipmunk actually came to me and took peanuts from my hand. He learned fast. But he wouldn’t come on my knee to get the peanuts, even though he was looking, and watching the other chipmunks. All the other 5 were crawling all over me yesterday, having lots of fun. It’s a beautiful Sunday morning. I hope you enjoy today’s flowers, have a wonderful day and God bless! (😺3 days!)
