I call her ? Ms. Chips mostly .. she is part of a generation of chipmunks that have lived in the back garden for years.
It was complicated this Spring when the new patio was put in .. she had to move temporarily .. and we did worry about her a lot .. but Garden PA saw she had her family in our neighbor's rather neglected back yard (neglected being a good thing because she and her babies were safe there)
The babies have long gone .. like the babies of the Robin .. but Ms. Chips has stubbornly made a new home in our new patio .. who could kick this little soul out ?
They are so hard to photograph .. so quick .. never settling for more than an instant.
Of course more allium .. these bloom later than most
I am thinking of Fall already with the bulb catalogs arriving ...
