More Squirrel Drama for Mama

June 9th, 2011 | Posted by Alison Spath in Late Night Craziness

Well, I’ve got good news – and I’ve got bad news.

Guess What

The bad news is, squirrels don’t give a rats ass about marigolds.

Marigolds Don't Work

I came home from running errands this afternoon to find this guy checking out my berry patch loot.

Strawberry Squirrel Stare Down

I didn’t want to believe it was true, so I stalked him to see what he’d do.

Making a Run For It

Sure enough, in he went!  See?  He doesn’t care about marigolds! Freaking squirrel!  Why don’t you just pick a bouquet of them already and be done with it, you… you… SQUIRREL.

Doesn't Care About Marigolds

Eventually he took off, but no worries – I stayed right on his tail.

Squirrel Paparazzi

Boy, I’m really feeling like the Squirrel Paparazzi right about now.

And yup, I caught him.  Red handed.

You Have Got to Be Kidding Me

(Had that berry been a bit more ripe and I could have said “Literally”.)

Would you look at him!  In Squirrel Euphoria! Eating MY strawberry!  That dreamy look should be on MY face!

Totally defeated at that point, I cut my losses, packed up the little one and off we went to the farmers market.

Cut My Losses

Because the good news is, not everyone has squirrel problems.

I wonder what the squirrel signs in their garden say?  Back to the squirrel drawing board.
