The Chipmunk is Back


Well, look who's back. Despite me tamping down his holes in my small garden, this little chipmunk isn't detered where bird seed is concerned.

The patio is a mess. We've had winds over 25 mph for the past three days and all my leaf litter which was covering the daylilies is now littering the patio. Sigh. I'll sweep it all back into the garden until the next windstorm comes through.

Have we named Mr. chipmunk yet? If not about "Bandit"? He sure does look like one...

Have fun with in between storm sweeping ;-)

I know he's a pest - but he's also very cute!!

He's so cute. I know you think he's a pest, but I'm sure he thinks of you in the same way; tamping down his holes and all that ;-) He must be a hungry little guy (do we know he's a guy or do we just assume because he can't take a hint?)

Anyes: I try not to name them because then I'll feel sorry for them and let them eat my daylilies.

Anne: He is an extreme pest. I've had to buy more daylily fans to replace the ones torn up by his burrowing.

Carolina: He could just come under the fence and get all the dropped bird seed. No need to dig holes. And there isn't anyway to tell male from female unless I see one definitely pregnant.
