Playing with natives and the trials and tribulations of my shady garden
You must have been very careful not to step on those tracks before you took the photos. The squirrels and rabbits could be hungry since they are not hibernating.
Your garden is lovely in the snow. It's so interesting to see all the tracks in the snow, evidence of their habits that we are otherwise unaware of...a little bit of a mystery revealed!
I love finding little creature tracks. Not so much in my garden though, especially those three. Your images of the snow and tracks are so peaceful looking.I think I get this feeling because you had a blue sky day. Happy and calm. So nice.
Thank you all for the comments. Yes it was a beautiful sunny day. I don't often take too much notice of animal tracks but when I found the mouse tracks I had to photograph them. I was surprised since I do have a cat, that loves the outdoors.
So cool to have some wildlife on your garden. Wonder how the snow will be when it get to us
I love finding tracks in the snow and knowing that my garden has had a visitor. Have a great weekend.
Poor little mouse, that must be heavy going, ploughing thru the snow!!
Hi, I came to visit after reading your comment on Garden Walk, Garden Talk.It's a good thing snow is pretty, otherwise winter would be even more difficult to cope with. We have a mouse that lives under our deck. It's been dashing back and forth between its home and the piles of bird seed on the sidewalk. We also have a number of squirrels and at least one rabbit seems to be living in one of the flower beds. I need to put up a barrier to protect my vegetable garden this year. They ate way more than their share last year.
