Thursday in da Garden

ollie....."We are soooo excited. We have something new in the garden. You can't see them during the day time so our pictures aren't that great, but we did manage to get two."




ollie...."Can you tell what it is? Here's a better picture (or so said the biped). Any one want to take a quess?"


ollie..."da biped has heard strange noises coming from the chicken pen for the last two nights. Since she'd fixed it so no coons on possums could get in she was a little confused. So last night she snuck out there wif a flash light and caught these little guys up in the rafters. At first she thought they were rats but then she saw their white bellies and stripes and kinda looked like smallish squirrels. Now can you quess what they are?"


ollie...."No?" "How about now?!"

How cool! Flying squirrels! At first I thought they were bats, but they're definitely not.

You're so lucky to have these little creatures as neighbours.

The chickens are in their little house at night but these guys are after the left over chicken feed in the pen. They let me walk up to the fence to take the pictures and one even climbed down the fence but that picture didn't come out. grrrr

Wow! We've never seen flying squirrels before. Mum's silly, she said it looked like he was flashing at the camera.

Nice visiting and seeing you at the garden club today.
I at first thought that maybe there was a vampire bat at your place. Glad it turned out to be a flying squirrell instead. They aren't as dangerous as the Hollywood vampires.
