We have mole hills appearing here, there and everywhere at the moment, not many but just enough to surprise us. And he likes to get about this little chap, these two appeared the other night in the soil pile, he must have felt as though he was 'reverse mountaineering' if he came from below ground level, this particular soil pile is about four feet tall ;-)
Further along on the doggie walk I thought I would take a photo of our dwarf Daffodils and Tulips. They are not meant to be dwarf at all .... we just planted them WAY too deep!!
To give you an indication of size, here is my foot, next to an emerging bulb. The ones with flowers on have reached the dizzy height of about four inches :-)
Here is a Tulip, coming through and already starting to flower ....
... and to give you an indication of size here's my foot again.
I may be good with veggies but I seem to have a blank-spot when it comes to flowers ;-)
We also have lots, and I really do mean lots of these little holes around the place. At first I wondered what was causing them .....
... then I saw a cheeky little fellow leave his nut shells behind.
Yes, they are where squirrels have buried their stashes of nuts all over the place. How they manage to find these little pockets of stored food I have no idea, I ended up opening all the cupboard doors in my kitchen to find a tin of chickpeas the other day and I only put them away a week or so ago.
Clever little squirrels.
