Some of you might remember this scene from my garden from last summer.St. Francis on his head, the birdbath broken.
Well, the culprits are back at it. I saw two squirrels chasing each other around yesterday morning and next thing I knew, my cleverly "squirrel-proofed" bird feeders had bit the dust. Er, snow.
Repairing the damage meant shoveling out a place to put the ladder legs. The snow is 18 inches deep on the flat, which means it is over the top of my knee high boots. I use snowshoes to get to the compost pile. Anyway, as you can see, the feeders are back in the air so the cardinals don't have to stand in the snow to get their safflower and sunflower seeds.
We'll see how long before the tree rats get the urge to gnaw on rope again.
