Squirrel Update

Yes, my friends, it is time for a Squirrel Update!  As they say, WOO HOO!  Our squirrels continue to vex me in small ways.  Looks like the current count is six animals and they are a fixture at the north side feeder tree.  Happily, none of the wretches has gotten into any of the feeders and that's a huge relief.  My run of good luck there continues into another long season.  However, squirrels are instinctively pests and at least one of this bad lot is no exception.  We've discovered them digging into my beloved's Portulacas.  What the heck is that all about?!??  Do they have tasty roots??  I've poured some hot pepper flakes into the holes.  Maybe that will discourage the digging!  But it could be worse.  Onwards and upwards!
