Re: squirrels

For me, deer are right up there with squirrels, but more so. I have an Aesculus pavia which will probably never be more than a 3ft high shrub, thanks to Bambi browsing. And you wouldn't believe the deer - car collisions we have especially at this time of year.

Hmmm, I sense a tad bit of bitterness in your words Cathy. You are right though I confess. I just like to watch their antics but for me they have never been a pest. We have a few right down the street from me but my neighborhood is still too new with no grown trees for them to play in. I can understand I suppose how they could be a nuisance.

I did have a customer who came up to me after purchasing a plant and she said that a squirrel had jumped right into her new Hib. She was very disappointed so I gave her another plant to swap with me. I took her damaged one for a new one. She promised to squirrel proof the new one.

I have the same attitude about deer. I would love to have bambi playing out in my backyard but again I've never had the frustration that must come with that. I'm just a suburban romantic I guess.
