Take Three Thursday - You Don't Belong There

If an effort to notice more in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday.  The idea is to take 3 photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment,  by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in.  What have you noticed this week?
See what these friends have noticed this week:
Maggie: Farmers Wife Day By Day  
Eileen: In My Playroom 

This week what I was noticing was that our chipmunk colony seemed to be in more places that they shouldn't be.  I really could post another 4-5 photos of where they shouldn't be ... oh the antics of these darlings ...

Exhibit One
Exhibit One - in the bird feeder - you're not feathered & you're making a mess, kicking out the seed your don't like!

Exhibit Two

Exhibit Two - get out of that freshly planted pot!  Those sticks were suppose to discourage you from digging in there! Now the next squirrel or chipmunk will come & dig up that hidden peanut along with the flowers!

Exhibit Three

Exhibit Three - you are not a hat!  Don't worry the cat is on their deck, I won't let her chase you ... OK OK the alarm has been sounded.

  Chipmunks, such a pesky adorable garden creature friend.


  1. It may be a constant battle but you have to admit they're cute!

    1. They are so cute & it's the digging in my pots of annuals that annoys me the most but eventually they stop digging out the plants & just dig beside them - they know the hand that feeds them!

    1. They are both those things, but too many quickly becomes annoying when we are trying to just sit on the patio, they are SO tame & will crawl up into your lap for peanuts.

  3. Well, they are a nuisance, but they are adorable as your photos so perfectly show!

    1. They can quickly become begging nuisances & this year there are a few holes under our flagstone patio that are a problem. But so darn cute.

  4. Perfect description...pesky adorable creatures, teehee.
