Red Dirt Farm and Studio

growing flowers dancing with chickens painting joy

Actually, it really isn’t a battle, as I have several old colanders out in the yard  that I fill with food for the squirrels.  I just wish they would stay off the bird feeders.

I was out walking in the snow when I spotted this cutie in my colander.

He had his face buried in the seed.  It took him a few minutes to realize I was watching him.

Imagine the squirrel voice…


Oh crap she saw me!  Maybe I should run.



If I’m very still, maybe she will go away.


If I squint my eyes, nope she is still there.


Oh well, I think I’ll just go ahead and eat a little.



Are you looking at me?



What do you mean I’ve got a piece of food on the end of my nose?


Look at me I can do push-ups.


OOhh, looks like I need to have my nails done.



Lately I’ve neglected my blog and yours too.

Life has been coming at me fast and furiously, leaving me feeling a little squirrely.

More winter weather is heading our way tomorrow.

Here at Coral Cottage we are anxiously awaiting the spring thaw.

 How about y’all?

See you later,

    Your squirrel is enjoying that food so much! Hope you are feeling less squirrely and the thaw is soon in coming. Sarah x


  2. Yes, indeed those little furry guys love their kibble, and I enjoy watching them. Snow on the way…


  3. ha ha – very cute post. The photos are beautiful as always. Sorry to hear the storm will be hitting you, it’s supposed to miss us {fingers crossed}.


    1. Staci – I hope you did get a break from this storm, it is still coming down here. I’ve put lots of seed out to keep the birds and squirrels happy – and me too.

    What is in the “kibble” you feed the squirrels. Great squirrel photos and I enjoyed the new “banner” photos you put up.


    1. Hi Miss Linda – Thank you for commenting on the new banner, until the next one. I put out regular birdseed with old bread, nuts, and fruits – whatever I have leftover that is a little stale and safe for them to enjoy. They don’t complain, so I guess they are satisfied. 🙂

        Just wanted to make sure you weren’t feeding them dog food. 😆


  5. This post made me laugh! 🙂 I love the squirrel thoughts that go along with your amazing photos. So funny! I hope you were spared the worst of the weather, and that spring arrives for you soon!


    1. Glad you got a little tickle in your tummy. Those furry rodents make me smile. Snow is here with bitter cold, and supposedly, more on the way in a few days. 😦

    Cheers, Gina


    1. Gina -Glad you got a little chuckle, more snow on the way, just means more squirrel antics!
