Peek-a-boo...

... I see you...

Well, it's actually easy to spot these two guys...


They're just little chipmunk statues that sit still...

...on either side of the deck railing...


Now these guys are a little tougher to spot sometimes, but if you look closely, you'll always find a friend or two peeking at you from somewhere...
This little Chip likes to play hide-and-seek on the bottom shelf of the carpenter's bench.


This one enjoys playing around our new backyard decking...

And the other day, while looking out the window, I noticed that Garden Bunny was sporting a hat of sorts...


Upon closer inspection, it was a Chip perched between his ears...


They also love to maneuver (with incredible ease) the pickets of our garden gate and trellis...


Such a welcome addition to our little yard...
We are enjoying some MUCH needed rain for the past few days here in New England. Thankfully, it also brought temps in the 60's... Such a relief after the long, hot days of this past summer.
Hope you are all enjoying this last week of August. I can't believe the summer is almost at an end, and that September is just around the corner!

Hasn't this rain been wonderful? I feel like I can finally relax about the well. My rain gauge is overflowing!

Your chip(s) are adorable. I just saw one scamper across the back of our property today. They are the cutest creatures.

Hi Donna! Oh, what cute little chipmunks! We don't have any around here just squirrels! I talk back to the squirrels and they just fuzz at me like something else!
Oh, I would love to feel some of that cooler weather! Love New England!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Good evening, Donna,
I can't believe how you captured those little chipmunks in action! Have a terrific Tuesday evening. ~Natalie

How adorable! Love the pic of him suspended on top of the picket fence with a silhouette! Wish we had them around here.

Great action shots of the chips. They are the cutest.

I am loving the cooler temps but the rain is putting a damper on my tennis game.

These are precious photo's, I love chipmunks, now squirrels are a different thing. They are cute but get into and can do lots of damage, like eat my tulip bulbs..\\yvonne

Darling photos. I love little animals that visit our yard. And, I also love the little statue animals that sit proudly in the garden.

Happy days to you...
