Giving Thanks....

(click any photos to enlarge)

"Dear Lord, thank you for this bounty which I am about to receive....


Amen. "

That truly was the first thing I thought after seeing these photos, that Sammy looked like he was saying grace for all that yummy food on a cold winter morning here in New England!

Are these not the sweetest photos that my daughter recently took of one of our "Sammy's" at the dining room window bird feeder?? Talk about a little ham with those cute poses! (I love the little leg resting on the side of the feeder!)




Please stop by A Southern Daydreamer for a listing of all bloggers sharing photos this Outdoor Wednesday!

I also wanted to remind everyone to visit My Little Cottage in the Making for Joanne's "A Better Me" post. Feel free to join in on the fun - the more, the merrier!!

OMG! Those photos are so darn cute! Have you ever fed those little guys by hand? I know I would be for sure. I would get out there every day and soon have them coming in my house. LOL

Hugs,

This picture of a squirrel praying is adorable. Your daughter is a good photographer but who is the copywriter...with the prayer. How cute this OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY post is.

I got a good laugh seeing that you've named your squirrel. We have named ours also. We call him/her HOS (Hateful Old Squirrel) Hos rules the yard. He/she chases our cat and takes over the bird feeder if his corn is all gone. Thanks for a good laugh.

Your Sammy is so cute. Great photos! I love all your posts on the squirrels and birds who visit your feeders. When watching the wildlife in our yard, I become entranced. It is certainly one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon. Thanks so much for sharing!

What a cutie! Love your squirrel photos. I can't believe your daughter caught the squirrel in that pose. And I love the caption!

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Your little Sammy is so sweet! It must be amazing to see him up so close like that! It does look like he is praying!

I noticed that the squirrel who lives in my yard is awake again. I think she hibernated this winter. I saw her bouncing through the yard with leaves from the riverbank so that she could revamp her nest.
