!Calling All Squirrels!

Squirrels, it seems you are remiss in your annual fruit-tree pruning work. I noticed that I still have some almost-ripe pomegranates on my tree but last year, you had already decimated them all, even though the seeds were still white inside. Where are you? How could you have missed these bright red globes of goodness? Not hungry? Lost your appetite? Perhaps you’re spending too much time on the much smaller tomato-flavored red globes of goodness and neglected to notice that the pomegranates are almost ripe. I can’t imagine what’s keeping you mangy, rat-faced, no-good, low-life, beady-eyed, scum-sucking, fruit-eating squirrels away from my tree??? Β Come back! I miss you! We can share. Oops… I gotta go. My pants are on fire.

    That’s a fine looking snake! And that pomegranate just waiting! Haven’t you noticed they have squirrel-sized laptops for the little cuties to log onto fruit whereabouts….you know…..at the drug store, right by the bras!

    I know it’s a “fake snake” but even I wouldn’t touch those poms! πŸ™‚

    Yayy!…the snake does seem to be working keeping the squirrels away. Can’t say so much for the rabbits though. I thought about the rabbit Jenny after seeing your photo of him eating a flower and I just hope he isn’t as destructive as a squirrel can be. It might be just me but he seems to be a bit more tamed. Maybe it’s because I’ve had a rabbit for a pet is why I see him that way…

    Glad to hear Teka is doing well, Sue πŸ˜€

That thing is perfect and just what I would expect to see in one of your trees!! πŸ™‚ You are so fortunate to have all those trees it’s like a produce department in the grocery store! Good for you JJ!!

    Btw, Teka is still doing well and for that we are so grateful. πŸ™‚
