Neighborhood News

There were ruffled feathers this week when this pair tried to make a move.

I don't appreciate having my pretty pot of petunias smashed down. Found them by surprise last week when I watered them. I had that pot down for a whole week and still they want to try and build a nest there.

Here's a job I'm glad I don't have to do. Tree trimmers up in my neighbor's tree. The two men were really amazing and the tree is beautifully opened up and still shaped so nice after a huge trimming.

The squirrels were angry about it and picked a bunch of Alice-Jane's oranges. Apparently they don't like change.

I know you didn't want your flowers smashed, but that was so sweet the two of them sitting there together!

Aw. Maybe you could hang something that would make a better nesting spot and move the pretties. :) How funny that the squirrels picked the oranges! I am listening to one chastise my cat right now. She is sitting out at the doorstep taking a break from nursing her very demanding children and she gets yelled at by a disgruntled squirrel! Honestly.

LOL - sometimes change is hard - even when the intentions are good. Looks like those squirrels are creatures of habit.

Cooo. Coooo. Coooo.

Your backyard has become it's own little wildlife Payton Place! Not laughing at the chaos and destruction... but only you can crack me up over wildlife antics.

You can send that pair over my way. I have a hanging pot whose geranium is probably not going to bounce back from the would be a perfect place for them.
Which of course explains why I have no birds there.

That orange on the fence is hilarious! Any thoughts on why there were three ducks in a front yard in Ferndale, MI last week? (no, no water feature, river, pool, pond, lake, stream, rivulet, etc., in sight)

Oh they look sweet all right...until the little ones hatch and sit there and want to be fed all day...while they poop all the time too...on the deck! We left the first nest 3 years ago and learned this the hard way. Now we diligently police the hanging pots and shoo the doves away and into the bushes and trees.

But don't you think they'd make a charming addition to the petunias?
