Terracotta pots

After reducing our plastic pots, by getting nice terracotta ones (over 100 from eblag) nicely stacked in our open shed. Along come newly born squirrel twins from their dray in the front conifer (mother squirrel having used stolen bunting from our front fence as bedding) you've guessed it, our nice antique pots over the floor. We now have quite a lot of crocks, probably 20 got broken. Those twins are fun to watch though.!!!

    What a right royal pain in the doodahs  :/

    But are they as cute as these two chaps?
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Those are cute Fairygirl. One of the twins was inside a squirrel proof feeder that has 1.75" square holes, now that took some getting out of.!!

    Sounds like something straight out of Beatrix Potter.
