A Bit of Jekyll and Hyde
This Mother’s Day I spent quite a bit of time outdoors enjoying the spring weather. I had fun watching this little red squirrel zip back and forth across the porch from one bird feeder to the next.
He became increasingly comfortable with my presence and ultimately stretched out on the bench within three feet of me. One minute he’s hanging with me in companionable silence on the porch.
The next minute, he scared me, popping up and screeching at me. Creepy little guy!
