I am confident that the squirrels who live in my backyard get into my garden and help themselves to the fruit on my trees. Despite this, I find them charming. On occasion, I have been known to set out a snack for them. I did this a few days ago, when I placed a rotting mini pumpkin on the back deck. It took the squirrels longer than I expected to help themselves but on Thursday morning I looked out the window and saw this.
I was only able to make one more picture through the window before the squirrel took his pumpkin off for some private dining.
