Little things I had to take this from far away through the screen on the porch so not clear but just wanted to share. This is Chip, I think, they do all look alike. But this one is friendly. Looks aren't everything.
Chippies, or chinkmunks, as I like to call them, are awfully cute and incredibly quick and nimble! So happy when I see wild creatures still thriving within our inhabited spaces.
so fast and light on their feet.
I surprised one who was exploring the garden shed yesterday. He/she wasn’t keen on sharing space with me, so jumped out the door. I like seeing them.
they seem to pause though, at least for a moment, I can hand feed some of them.
So cute! Our squirrels can bring out a laugh in me even on a bad day, their craziness just explodes.
I’ll admit, I have considered a shot gun tho, oh ha!
plotting the next move
Ha. Hello Chip! All of our squirrels have been Ritchie, haven’t been able to tell ’em apart though.
You’re right, looks aren’t everything!
Cute but they get much bigger(I was sutpriised) and they dig🤨
oh do they dig, my garden has many basement apartments
I stopped naming the squirrels, too many
I’m a great fan of Chip and all his buddies and kin! I’ve got Chippy who lives in my bed of BlackEyed Susans just outside the bedroom window–Chippy provides many hours of delight for my cat everyday as she scopes out his every move.
ha, same here.
You are a kind human! 💚💦
We try, right?
Gardening is often a compromise I’ve found.
I like chip 🧡 and that you share your garden!!
What a darling picture. Sweet little creature…
for the moment.
dale is on the other side of the fence hiding.
Chip looks like he’s posing for a portrait.. just needs a little waistcoat and a pocket watch.
Auditioning for a children’s book perhaps.
You sure it isn’t Monk? The critters got al my cherry tomatoes this year (my one porch pot!) and dig treacherous holes all over the yard. They are cute though!
once there is interaction, forgiveness comes softly.
So cute! Wish we had chipmunks here.
they can be a mixed blessing…
