Red Roof Inn

That’s some pretty swanky decor you got there, Mr. Squirrel.

I found this squirrel digging for food underneath a rather colorful overhang of bright red leaves.  And no, this wasn’t taken in Fall, but just a few weeks ago at the park.  You’ll notice all the violets in the background that were the subject of last week’s Saturday Squirrel post.  When I saw this tree full of red foliage, I was really hoping to catch a squirrel climbing through it…. but had to settle for one rummaging under its red roof.  If anyone knows what kind of tree that might be that has red leaves in Spring, feel free to educate me in the comments!

Yellow dandelions, purple violets and red leaves?  What colorful background will next week’s Saturday Squirrel be accentuating?  We shall see.  But until then….

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Lovely. It looks like a Japanese maple, very pretty tree.

    If he ever needs another place to stay, he can come to the inn near my place–it’s called the Dew Drop Inn! (*winks*)

    Those are new leaves on a Japanese maple – I have one right outside my window!

  4. Wow, that’s a beautiful Japanese Maple specimen. No wonder the squirrel has such discerning taste.

    I’ve got a red bush.
    Let me rephrase that.
    I have a bush which has read leaves in the garden all year. I don’t know what it is, though. And it didn’t come with a squirrel.

  6. We have a Japanese Maple in our garden…’s Teddy’s favorite place to hangout and keep an eye on things. I keep it trimmed like an umbrella and he can hide under there and harass passing squirrels (oops) and birds. The leaves are that color all year.
