  1. Weather! What an amazing tail that squirrel has.

    1. Isn't it huge? I read somewhere that the size of a squirrel's tail is an indication of how cold the winter will be. We seem to have started a little late on the cold but it's here now! -8 with the wind chill this morning! I bet he uses it as a blanket when he sleeps. ha.

    2. We had a hugely fat squirrel outside the office window today. He was sitting on the bike store eating a pizza crust with great aplomb. We think he has eaten pizza before (this is London) and he really didn't care we were all peering out the window about 3 feet away. But his tail was a sad excuse for a tail. The forecast is for MUCH colder weather this weekend -10 Celcius maybe. That will be a horrid shock for us and our squirrel I think.

    3. Let's see...-10C would be 14 here. Yes, that's a bit chilly! haha. He better fatten up with more pizza!

    1. Isn't it beautiful! Visibility was almost zero for a while, but
      then it settled down to beautiful falling flakes. Super cold, though!
      Painful to your face to be outside...and your fingers, even in gloves!

    1. You need a bird feeder attached to your window there.
      Cass and Orlin would sit there and stare.
      Or maybe fling themselves against the glass.
      Might really hurt their head and a$$.
      haha.

    2. lol Cassie would be on the hunt
      Orlin would run away if they gave a grunt

    1. He's wearing a coat! haha.
      Your rain must be waiting for our cold temps
      to cross the ocean before it turns to snow!
      If you get it, I want to see pictures!

      Delete
    2. Yes he has hasn't he? . . . lol
      But if I was him I'd want another . . . . brrr.
      lol . . . we always get your rain or cold or snow or tail end of hurricanes . . what have we done to you? We are only trying to be friendly . . . haha

      Yes I will snap some photos when snow comes and take great car not to get frost bite in the process . . haha

    4. What have you done to us? Now or 250 years ago? lol....

    5. Well 250 years ago it was such a shame you did not like us . . lol Perhaps it was the red colour of our uniforms but you just kicked us out . . . lol. Are you sorry? ha
      Now . . . well I think you all love us . . . . ha

      Love that little bird ~ Titmouse did Linda call it . . .

  8. Poor Cyril! I think you should do the decent thing and invite him in. Have you given him some peanuts?
    It looks like he's holding a little Squirrel-iPhone and taking a picture of you taking a picture of him!
    Cat? What cat? I see no cat.

    1. He looks right at me through the window. So cute. And the other little one who
      I thought was a baby is there around. Now I'm thinking it's his little lady. haha.
      No way to know for sure, though.

  9. Such a cute squirrel and I love that bushy tail!

    I see you now have the snow and cold temps. that I've had for about a week or so. Wish you could take mine and add it to yours! It should start melting here tomorrow, though, because it's supposed to be in the 40's and even rain on Friday. I'm leaving for Florida Feb. 1 for a week and cannot wait for warmer temperatures!

    1. Isn't he sweet! Do you have them in Canada? Maybe one will come visit soon!

      Delete
  12. I didn't even notice the junco on GG's head!
    The titmouse is so sweet. Love his little mohawk.
    I looked it up and we do have the tufted titmouse in Canada but it says it barely ranges into southeastern Canada in the Great Lakes region. Not too common here, I guess.

    1. I guess that explains why Linda doesn't have any in her yard.
      If there were some nearby I'm sure they would find all of her feeders!

      Delete
    2. Definitely. We will have to start posting signs.
      This way -----> to Linda's!

    3. What attracts them? What kind of seed are they eating at yours....too darn cute!

      Delete
    4. The only thing I have out is black oil sunflower seeds, so I know they like those!

  16. Hmmm.
    The best way to look at Frosty Photos is from the inside looking out. Just sayin.

  18. Boy, Betsy, you REALLY wanted those pictures today!! With wind chills in the negatives, I believe those would have just by-passed me altogether, and I'd have waited on the spring daffodils to show up! Good work on the pics!

    1. Well, the daffodils don't show up here until April, so we aren't even going to think about them just yet! haha..
