Squirrels in Trees.................











Look out trees the squirrels are going to give you the good hair-cut you need!!!

We have started the very BIG job of pruning all the fruit trees in the orchard.
Eeeekkk what a mess we have made.

It was a sunny but freezing cold morning.....
lots of layers and warm wooly hat was needed....
especially with little ears.

We think this is going to take a few weeks?????
Four finished....
Twelve to go....

Wearing his furry ears very well
Mr Trouser....

Winter roadtrip............










The squirrels were off on an adventure to Central Otago to buy some 
great vintage treasures from a lovely couple last week.
It was the best day......
picnic lunch,
op-shopping,
vintage tresures for our new venture,
 picking some dried flowers,
and being outside on a cold wintry day.

Just like the last of the autumn leaves we are just hanging out for Spring.....

Little Brown Squirrel.............









I love all colours and my wardrobe is a rainbow of many......
Like most people I go through romantic flings with certain colours at different times.
At the moment I am doing the blue faze.....with layers of different shades of blue, navy and cobalt.

So why then am I showing
 Brown????

Autumn shades and especially brown are my safe, grounded and feeling comfortable colours.
The earth tones always make me feel closer to nature.
 The sense of blending with the world around me, its that feeling of harmony.

So little brown squirrel it is.

The sleepy season till Spring.
