New Friends

Cory at Pink Dogwood Blossoms sent me this button string!
Visit the link above to read about it.
You meet the nicest people through their blogs!
So I went outside to take the above photograph this morning...
and thought I'd take a few other shots as long as the light was so good.

Above is a small table by my backdoor.

We had a rain storm last night... I think....

it's wet outside and it was a huge line on the radar when we went to bed...

Neither my DH nor I heard a thing...

Below is a plaque that hangs above the table.

It was made by the Brookwood Community and I've had it for many years.

The reason I mention the storm.... and not knowing how bad it was.... no limbs down tho...

but this little friend was sitting right at the back door this morning when DH went to the gym before work. He had to nudge him with his foot and he was SOAKING WET and ran under a plant table.

When DH left for work, "little friend" was sitting outside the fence in the driveway.

Well, when taking pictures, I "just happened" to notice him....

I'll let ya know.... but I'm thinking he's no longer "with us"!!!
And for my Kiwi friends, it's a squirrel....
(they don't thave those there)
What do you think??????

Saw those buttons and I love them! We'll see if it's too late. Poor squirrel. Everything is looking so green from the rain - love it!

Sweey string of buttons! Did you check the squirrel's pulse? I hope he is just drying out. Those little guys can be a nuisance in the wrong places, but this little guy just looks like he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. :(

OMGosh don't show that lil squirrel to our son! Hoping for a better report later in the day, they can be rascals, but are cute and usually so bouncey!

Ummmm...he looks....well like he is as you said "not with us" Poor thing. The buttons are cute and your outside shots are pretty!

Well young Linda, I hope you didn't just leave him there??? Did you take him inside and do CPR and warm him up a bit? Sip of whiskey?

:))) buttons look neat on a string!

Have a very fun and happy weekend.

He doesn't look well -- did the storm get him? How sad.

The button string is lovely! What a fun idea!
