a garden friend

our little friend, the thirteen-lined ground squirrel, is back! he is bigger than the common chipmunk, with more stripes on his back. he is actually quite tall when he stands to watch us, watching him. one of his many holes is just under the gray rock in our garden. it is an especially good spot for him, where sunflower seeds spill out of the bird feeder!

p.s. please disregard the sorry state of my garden in these pictures!
