White-Squirrel-Video Life goes on. Even though the human species is vexed with a renegade virus right now, the rest of the natural world carries on as usual.

Here in my neck of the woods, we are not only blessed with mountain laurels in full stunning bloom right now, but a year-round species of white squirrel.

Whenever people visit from out of town, seeing these creatures seems to be one of the highlights of their visit. My small town even has a White Squirrel Festival every year, which this year was cancelled due to that renegade virus mentioned earlier.

I am fortunate to have a family of white squirrels who live in the forest around my house.

Every day, without fail, they come up on my back deck to look for sunflower seeds discarded by the birds. Every day—as if answering a double-dog-dare from their friends—the white squirrels attempt to conquer my Mt. Everest of squirrel-proof bird feeders. Every day, they fail.

However, they don’t fail at entertaining me and my dogs Jack and Charlie.

By the way, there is plenty of discarded seed below the feeders that is much easier to get to, so they are not being deprived.

In your area, what are you seeing in the natural world that reminds you that life goes on?


P. S. Thanks so much for your best wishes while I was under the weather. I am feeling much better now.
