I’m having a lot of fun looking through my images for anything related to Becky’s January Squares theme “UP”. I’d forgotten about this critter I saw last March during our first week of COVID lockdown. I’m always amazed at how they can cling to anything in any position!
The sunflowers are growing tall and beautiful in the Fullerton Arboretum cultivated gardens. These individual plots are an interesting mix of vegetables, fruits, flowers, and they’re full of quirky garden toys and art. This little squirrel snatched one of the sunflowers, scurried up a Sycamore tree, and proceeded to nibble away. He didn’t seem to mind my watching.
