Winter is barely a hop, and then spring is back, right?
The little chipmunks and squirrels are very busy these days carrying the hickory nuts to special places. The chipmunks are not as nervous as they should be for survival. They are very cute and often stop to look at you as they gather dry leaves or seeds for their burrows. We have some brush piles that they are cozy in. I'm hoping they won't be eating some new crocuses I planted.
