Oh, yeah. The dog days (squirrel days) of summer are upon us.
When my Sammy Squirrels go flat, and don't even flinch when I open the door,
you know the temperature is closing in on 100.
It's been brutally hot for at least the past 5 days. How I'd love a good old summer rainstorm.
I think Sammy would, too.
When he and his friends do muster up the energy to move around a bit...
... they don't go far. They like being near the sound of the water running in the fountain. Sammy brings his peanuts right up next to the fountain to eat. Pretty smart since he can follow up his meal with a nice cool drink. It looks like Mr. Blue Jay in the background has the same idea.
And little Chip is looking awfully impatient while waiting for Sammy to move.
I think he wants to get a nice, refreshing drink from the fountain himself (either that or steal Sammy's peanut to tuck into his other cheek!) It looks like he found only one peanut for the right side!! Silly Chip.
Wishing you steamy summer heat if that's what you love,
or gentle rains and balmy breezes if that's more to your liking!
This week I'm linking to Tracie's Cottage Garden Party at the lovely Fishtail Cottage
and Cindy's Show & Tell Friday at the beautiful My Romantic Home.
