Squirrels at Macbiehill

I was idly watching our bird feeders while contemplating what to do with a piece of art I'm working on and what did I see???
Our very first squirrel here at Macbiehill. We've never seen any sign of them before in the 13 years we've lived here. No idea where it suddenly came from but it seems to like our bird feeders!! It's a grey squirrel rather than a red one but I don't mind, it looks so soft and cuddly. It will mean the nuts consumption will rise but who cares!!
Only problem is there is a white greyhound with her nose pushed hard against the glass of the door looking at this new creature with way too much interest. I can only hope that it will be too fast for her. I'll try and keep a look out whenever we go out but there is bound to come a day when squirrel and greyhound will come face to face.

Your first squirrel, wow! We have multitudes of them here in CT, Frieda. They have not been hanging off the birdfeeder -yet, but instead 4 or 5 of them scamper around, feed on the ground below the feeder, and run like race horses when Chloe & Asia spy them & start a chase. The squirrels always seem to manage a tree quick enough; The dogs at the bottom of the trunk, looking up wistfully. I have not see a face-to-face show down yet!

Your Garden is beautiful with all the moss & mist. : ) lenna
