So, the next time you feel tired and exhausted from working in the garden or the fields, think about all the birds and the critters and the animals and the sea life with all they have to do to just stay alive. It makes our toils seem a little less significant.
All critters would appreciate a helping hand by placing seed or suet or peanuts and the like within reach to supplement their daily search for food.
On a comical note, told to me recently, was the story of several squirrels that co-operated in taking apart a fall decoration that contained several of the small decorative pumpkins and then proceeded to struggle and drag them across the yard to a nearby tree where they gorged themselves. I can’t say I even knew squirrels liked pumpkin, but now I know different — thanks Karen Holden.
