We have scenes like this all around our yard - the driveway, cement benches and birdbaths, in baskets, buckets and planters oh my - wherever you turn you see this kind of mayhem. I loved the shadow, the many textures and the warm earthy colors pictured above. It also made me realize that the squirrels have a great time foraging for the winter in our yard. Full of all kinds of nut trees such as hickory, walnut and oak, they can take their pick and provide a happy variety throughout the winter months. The puppies have even taken a liking to them but their favorite for sure is the hickory nut!
