SpoonfulOSugar posted a blog entry in Adventures with a Ladybird Herd - and other tales from the NorthI saw some bright yellow goldfinches earlier, so I stepped out to see if I could get a few photos. They flew away, but I saw a squirrel at the bottom of the feeder. Then I changed the focus. Oh my! That squirrel is mighty foolish. What is it thinking?! (Why didn't I notice it before?!) So I moved a bit and got a couple more similar shots, but without the obstructions. What I didn't expect was what happened next. Oh no! Run, squirrel! Apparently the squirrel has more guts than I do. Demon overlord is disgruntled by the lack of respect. Squirrel was unfazed, so Demon slunk off to investigate something smaller and more easily intimidated.

What was pretty when it appeared in December is now just ANNOYING. All the plants are back indoors. I won't even put them out today - it's too cold. For some, that means re-acclimating later in the week. *sighs* On the good news side, the cucumbers are starting to form their true leaves: They'll eventually be going here: And I went ahead and transplanted basil on Friday: It looks like three more nights in the 30s and then we *MAY* be ready for warmer temps. I am *SEVERELY* disappointed in Mother Nature right now.
