For March, Jude is looking for wildlife in the garden. These photos from when I lived in London (circa 2005 in this case) are pretty rubbish quality, but you can see the furry little devil in action. (This patio and the pot of mini yellow roses also appears in this post.) This squirrel and I had ongoing battles marked by offensive and counter-offensive. For example, I set up a feeder for the birds, which he promptly began to climb …

You have to admire his determination.

… until I added a homemade anti-squirrel device. Try as he might, he could not climb around that cone!

This is the pole after I added my nifty DIY squirrel defence.
