Lawn, Garden & Squirrels Photo Addendum

I mentioned Vicki’s attempts to keep squirrels from the birdseed. It got serious when she bought a guaranteed-to-work device that delayed the squirrels’ feeding for possibly an hour.

Next, Vicki erected (and painted) a tall, smooth tube on our deck and hung different feeders (and faux vegetation) from its top. (Patent is not pending.)

Was it fear of jumping, missing and falling that restrained the squirrels, or were they just laughing too hard? Whatever it was, it worked for a couple of days. That’s a record!
