When it snows squirrels climb trees........








Oh my goodness sweet-peas its snowing here!!!!!!
We are staying in Bannockburn, just outside Cromwell in Central Otago and well we woke up to snow flurries. They have been off and on all day, its not settling in the camping ground but the mountains are covered, making it mighty cold. Thank goodness that Basil is filled with nana knit blankets and old feather eiderdowns, we are snug as bugs. 
Going a little mad inside we decided to go on a walk when the sun came out, time to explore, yay.
Well we found the best ever tree to climb, yip the BEST. Now when a squirrel tells you its the best you know it is...... so up they scurried.
Hmmmm mad may have been an under statement?
Another fabulous pass time is watching the bunnies out and about, munching the grass in front of the parked up caravans. So cute......
One even managed to get inside Basil, tee hee

love V&W

  1. You guys are mighty and sweet in that magnificent tree! Did you know that in the second photo it looks like there's a furry wee one peeking out of the knot hole on the left. I thought at first it was a real squirrel. How funny would that have been... Keep warm and toasty.

  3. How cute! Snow sounds fun, it's been hailing today in Dunedin. You've probably noticed but that hat looks like the top of an acorn, perfect for a squirrel and so adorable!

  15. Ooh, reaching dangerous levels of cuteness here! You look so sweet bundled up against the cold and you're making me look forward to Autumn (which is pretty much here really). You look like you're having the most fun as well.
