More red squirrels because I find them incredibly cute!!!
This last one is sitting in a legacy of the goldfinches. We had so many goldfinches last winter that I resorted to throwing sunflower on the snow for three months to accommodate them all. This, of course, resulted in a huge buildup of sunflower when the snow melted, and although I raked up what I could, there was a good deal left that sprouted. All those little plants you see in this shot are sprouting sunflower!
I figure if even half of them grow up, bloom and set seed, we'll really be saving a lot of money on our seed bills this fall.
