Chester Demanded I show You This...



NO NO he said take it from another angle. So.....

I did as I was told. I asked him to pose under it and he became very upset. Telling me after all he is only about six inches high and it could crush him. I reminded the little fellow he went around planting these giant wonders in my carefully planted flower pots. I also mentioned what a good sport I have been by allowing these giant yellow plants to stay, even though they were NOT the color scheme I had planned on, let alone the size. I also mentioned that I have now found them growing in every planter on my deck and in my flower beds. He informed me this was necessary for his survival. I reminded him that I fed him all last winter and didn't get mad when he started eating my holiday wreath on the front door. He said I wasn't always on time with the feedings. Ack!! I give up! I wonder if they have squirrel training classes somewhere......

She really can carry on. This just takes the cake. I need a nap, good grief....

Too funny! Squirrels are like that ... planting where we don't want anything planted. In my case it's peanuts. I do love sunflowers and you have some beauties -- all thanks to Chester!

That Chester! This morning we had a baby raccoon swinging on our fountain. What are these wild critters coming to anyhow?

Thanks for the blue ribbon congrats. It was a magic time with mom.
