If at First you Don't Succeed.......

I'm giving it another go.  This trying to figure out the changes in blogger is doing me.  So...............this is a cutie in the garden.  There seems to be quite a few of them these days.  I expect to see the young ones once again this year.  They are so cute but absolutely heedless.  They seem to have no fear which could be their undoing.  This one appears to be an adult and likely living in the shed up behind the house.  I see signs of squirrels there all the time. 







Yesterday I saw the first butterfly of the season.  Yelled to himself to run in and get my camera but it had disappeared before I could take a picture.  Later as I was doing a bit of weeding I saw movement out of the corner of my eye and there it was again.  Luckily I had kept the camera outside so quickly got it and luckily the butterfly landed long enough for me to get a shot. 


Well, this post seems to be working out okay.  Maybe I've conquered it!  Looks like the sun is coming through so I'm off to do some gardening.

That squirrel is positively smiling while he hangs on the side of that tree. Glad you have persevered and conquered the beast.

I don't recall seeing any butterflies here yet. Good thing too. They'd perish in the cold and wet. April has been a dreadful month here in England. In more ways than one.

My dad used to have a problem with greed squirrels stealing all the feed in the bird feeders. Though they are fun to watch.

I was so happy to see your little red squirrel photos...our little red had not been around for months and then yesterday she appeared and is busily eating sunflower seeds. We think she has a family now!
I saw a butterfly in our yard similar to yours!

Blogger is giving me fits, too, OC. What a darling little red squirrel, I wish we had them out here. We only have the grey tree squirrels. I haven't seen any flutters around yet, but your photo of the one at your place is beautiful!

Blessings,

Victoria
