15 February: for Twiglets #312

AI artwork: squirrel sitting on a branch, watercolour style

Nuts Nuts Nuts

There’s a walnut tree
in a sunny corner of the garden.

Its sap is rising to wake
new spears of leaf-like green.

Squirrels chase up and down
the contours of winter,

and within their chatter, I hear
Nuts. Nuts. Nuts.

  1. I loved the squirrels when we were in England. They’re so quick! A little like willy wagtails. LOL. You felt they were always poised for the next hurl forward.


    1. And that they are! I can’t tell you how many bird-tables and seed & nut holders they’ve destroyed in a twinkling of an eye.

      1. Ha ha. There’s a guy on youtube – Mark Rober. The kids enjoy his videos. He’s a bit sciency, a bit inventorish, but does stuff that appeals to kids. He has a series involving squirrels which is great fun. The squirrels have been stealing bird seed from his feeder so he sets up this kind of obstacle course which, if they succeed in overcoming all the challenges, ends with their favourite kind of nut. He names all the squirrels. It’s really rather cute.


  2. Sadly, though, it takes about half a dozen of them to make a decent meal.
