Well now it probably won't look like a old lady piece of work.
It still needs a lot of attention. Thank God I didn't put in the swing set (of my my mom and dad) in the same bag.
The storms have ripped up so much that it's almost more than I get to...in between the mosquito invasion and bad weather. My little "happy face" pail keeps me going. Right now the pond is still dirty to I have to keep scooping leaves and shit out of it. But my lilies are starting to bloom big time. The buds are just bursting. It's nice to see something good happening back there.
I put out a basket of peanuts and tied it to a tree branch on the deck for the squirrels. I know it was a little nasty thing to do because it took them a long time to figure out. They knew the peanuts were in there, but couldn't figure out how to get into the "swinging" basket...which scared them. It took about an hour before the big grey squirrels figured it out....they just jumped into the basket with their big fat asses..grabbed a peanut and high tailed it out of there. The little red squirrels were much more cautious. They did a perimeter check, then got out their laptops and googled my house to see all the angles .. then just jumped from the highest branch into the basket with the speed of light...and then out with a peanut.
What the cyber squirrels didn't factor in their strategy was that "where there is a peanut...there is a Blue Jay." Oh yeah. Big time. The Blue Jays had a GPS system going on. At first they weren't too happy with the swinging basket, but they were very smart. They sat on the branches overlooking the basket ...looked at it from every angle...called a meeting...and I'm guessing Head Office told them to dive bomb it and get out as fast as you can. Which they did. That basket was swinging in the wind for ten minutes later.
I only got one shot of the whole debacle....with the grey squirrel after he jumped out of the basket.
balonie....enjoying life on the wild side.
