What’s that rustling in the bushes in the backyard?
It’s a little grey squirrel scratching her ears.
She flies onto the statue of the marble deer and tiptoes over the antlers and stops on top of the deer’s head.
Then, she picks a bright red begonia petal and climbs the pine tree with the loose petal between her lips.
Her companion hops over the fence and joins her, but she doesn’t want to argue today.
They have fought many times before on this same tree.
A moment of peace for these two love squirrels on a February afternoon.
