Spring Pruning!!!

Winter has put in another appearance this weekend and the bird feeders have been very busy.
The birds were eating all the seed and not dropping any on the ground for the squirrels.
This grey squirrel spent half an hour trying to get into the feeders from the Pagoda
Dogwood tree, but it was too small to hold it.
After a game of hide behind the small branch it settled down to
do some winter pruning.


I am joining Mosaic Monday over at Little Red House.

Cute shots of the squirrel. Looks like it has been rolling around in the snow like my dog does. I hope you have a great week!

What great shots of that perky little squirrel. Do you put your order in for him to prune accordingly, or does he just do his own thing?
