This is the culprit. This silly squirrel has been digging pecans they’ve hidden in my big red rose pot. I caught the little stinker red-handed.
I saw him jump up there and start digging furiously in the soil. I could have gone out on the patio and run him off. But I’d rather take photos instead.
Because aggravating as they can be, they are pretty darned cute with their antics.
Just look at that! He’s got his whole head in that hole.
Mission accomplished. Then he ran across the fence and disappeared.
I’ve been seeing holes in my containers out there. And now I know what’s going on. They’ve got their nuts dug into the pots and now they’re coming back to reclaim them.
Silly squirrels. They are entertaining though, I have to admit.
