this made my day

this morning while i was watching the birdies in the back yard, i saw a chipmunk running around! that means they are done hibernating and spring is getting near. i just love our chipmunks, we have a bunch of them living in various spots in the yard. there is one in particular that i favor - he lives in the front under the old claw foot bathtub that i have in my garden (full of plants!). i like to leave little snacks and finch food for him in a special little spot.

this particular picture is a few years old, taken one morning while i was eating breakfast and put my bowl down to go inside to get my camera. when i came back out (i came out quietly as i knew he had been sniffing around) - i saw him snacking from my bowl and snapped the photo. isn't he sweet?
