Mmph mmph mmmmmph…
While I’d like to give an eloquent dissertation on the photo of this week’s adorable Saturday Squirrel… I was always told it was not polite to talk with a mouth full of nuts. I apologize for any inconvenience my lack of wordiness may cause…
Have a fulfilling weekend everyone!

Oh a nice fresh greenie! There are an abundance of acorns this year – wonder if that is a sign of a “difficult” winter coming OR, perhaps it’s simply an abundance of acorns!
Oak trees are notoriously fickle. So far with my tree, I’ve had acorns, no acorns, a bunch of acorns, acorns, another bunch of acorns, no acorns, a few acorns, and this year….. acorns! I’ve noticed no correlation between acorns and the severity of winter, so I think they’re either just teasing us or like to be random!
Random works for me…..keeps us on our toes (or if we fall on all those acorns, keeps us on our – er – youknowwhats!).
Because of the plague of caterpillars, we have very small and very few acorns this year. I hope our squirrels have stashed a lot from previous years! That’s a really cute squirrel. Super cute 🙂
There are probably stashes and stashes of acorns from previous generations of squirrels all over the place. In the event of a famine… we’ll all starve, but the squirrels will survive on centuries worth of underground nuts!
I hope it doesn’t get stuck in his mouth…
That would be embarrassing. Years later, they would find a squirrel skeleton with a rotted acorn lodged between its teeth…
How cute! That acorn looks huge! We planted an oak tree about 10 years ago but it’s never made any acorns and we don’t have native oaks here, so I never see squirrels with acorns.
We have a lot of different nut trees in my park, and I love all of the different things I see them lug around that I can’t see in my backyard! Of course, I do have tons of acorns… and their discarded shells my squirrels leave everywhere!
