This photo is copyrighted but I don’t know who the photographer is. I downloaded it from Google animal photos. Today I was at Saratoga Community Garden. My intentions for the visit was to add raw vegetable scraps in the composter. I sat on a bench under the arbor listening to the peepers in the fall warm afternoon sun and enjoying the show before me.
When I set my eyes on a raised garden bed in the distance, I noticed a brown squirrel in the path chewing on a yellow sunflower head that had fallen to the ground. The squirrel was enjoying a pleasant experience, but decided that he/she wanted to carry it out to a lawn area. At a distance, I watched as he devoired sunflower seeds. I mean this squirrel wasn’t going to stop eating till he/she ate all the seeds. It really was enchanting to watch.
Spend time outside and learn something new about the natural world. Nature calms us down and is healing.
