Last week, out of nowhere, there were two piles of patio stone unearthed, as if a critter was creating a village under the patio and needed a skylight.
This morning, two new mounds, much bigger, and with dirt included……
The old ones…
This old one has some new addition of dirt to it this morning – last week it was only stone.
What is it? Chipmunks? Snakes? Squirrels?
In photo number one, there looks to be a footprint or body print in the center of the dirt. I’m trying to envision a critter under the patio scritching away in order to make a winter home perhaps, a place to horde acorns? I need a Critter Cam!
The mounds appear overnight, so whoever is busy is a night owl. I’ve left the previous mounds untouched but now that I see more, I may sweep his work back into the crevices and see how long it takes him to start over. Too cruel?
It’s raining now, and expected to rain heavily today, all day, so mother nature may do the sweeping for me. More as I know.
Happy Friday. What with the rain, no major plans yet today. Coffee, more coffee.
PS: I did it again – created a PAGE, not a post. Damn you WP. Now I have to cut and paste. Ugh.
