so gentle
his eyes, the curl in his tail
red squirrel
at home in this pine forest
I will always remember

  1. You are so lucky to have red squirrels – we only have the grey ones in our garden. I love the curl in his tail, Xenia! Enjoy the rest of a cooler Sunday, Monday is already on the horizon. 🙂 xxx

    1. So funny! Thankfully they are very sweet and quite timid over here. They blink at me and I blink back – I have never heard them make a sound! 🙂💖 xxx
