Are squirrels a part of your garden's ecosystem? Do you consider them friends or foes?
ETA: Thanks to Connie who correctly identified this squirrel species!
The lovely 'Autumn Joy' sedums that I photographed just a few weeks ago now look like this:
They had not had enough time to dry out and harden off before we were hit with a couple of heavy snows. Some years they will stay perfectly upright and the flower heads will dry to a rich, brick red, adding texture and color to the winter landscape.
This year it was just not meant to be!
|this "lawn" is about two feet wide|
They managed to get it right on the other side of the walkway, so what went wrong here?
A wasted opportunity is now a waste of resources, too.
