What a cute little critter (chipmunk?) I don't get either chipmunks or squirrels in my yard, although they do live out in my back woods. I rather envy those who do have them, even though they can apparently become nuisances.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Half of what I grow has some value for birds, insects and wildlife in general. I love the opportunity to see these creatures in my garden, and to take photographs, esp of insects!

Chipmunk, yes. Cuter than squirrels. Had too many of them at my last home. They loved to shallow burrow in the vegetable garden. NOT wonderful. Here no chipmunks, but I'm swimming in squirrels and they dig through the garden and the lawn, and plant thousands of acorns. About half of them bloom. Blooming acorn pulling is an annual major exercise event.

That is the prettiest picture with the cutest little Chipmunk! Lovey dubby We don't have Chipmunks here but do have hundreds of squirrels! They plant acorns in my container plants and I find little oak seedlings sprouting every year. For a long time I put peanuts (in the shells) in the bird feeders and the squirrels were apparently burying them in the yard because one year I found peanut plants sprouting in the lawn. I didn't realize what it was until I dug one and it still had the shell attached. It had me experimenting and I took peanuts and stuck them in soil in a hanging basket and sure enough ... peanut plants. Smiling

These little cuties look like miniature squirrels. We have a few on the property, but I have never seen any damages caused by them. They are most welcome here.
