At Last

Signs of Spring! The garden is greening with plants peeking out and beginning to bloom. We've got squirrels, chipmunks, and birds visiting at all times of day. So far we have only managed to train Bubba II to peanut eating, but give us time. A couple days ago we watched a robin build this gorgeous nest.And tomorrow it is to be over 70°F (and 'A's 27th birthday). Saturday through Tuesday in the 80°'s.

Hi Deb,
Off topic but....where has Ellie come from? (Follower)
She had only 6 posts in Dec 08 and 1 post in Feb 09 and yet she has 490 Followers !...and on the Feb posting there were 89 comments !

Is this a virus or what?

Me again...I've just found out how to block she has now gone. A bit suspicious I thought ?
PS Have you got a picture of a chipmunk anywhere on your blog? I am amazed at all this different wildlife you have. (I've lived a sheltered life! )

Hi K-D. I wondered about Ellie as well. I didn't look at any of her video clips. Have you? If there is nothing objectionable there I guess I'll just leave things as they are and see what happens. Not a virus, though. Some folks have imported their blogs from other sites so have been around a lot longer than the date on Blogger, some folks go around 'collecting' followers. Anyway, the count does appear exorbitant.

(Ellie? Are you actually reading? What's up?)

I just checked and I have no actual photos of chipmunks. I do have a few sketches that I did for a friend. If you enter 'chipmunk' in the search box at the top of my blog you'll get there...

More on chipmunks....

Go to 'Netcrimes' blog from the sidebar. Enter 'Chippy' in the search box at the top of her blog. Voila'

Hey, that's fantastic.
I have only ever seen them as cartoon characters and I didn't realise that they were that small.
I always get mixed up with our stoats, ferrets and weasels.
I guess I couldn't tell a racoon from a possum !!!!
