Squirrel back again

I just was wondering, that I hadn't seen the squirrel for a while.
Maybe the nuts were the wrong nuts,
should I replace the nuts for walnuts?

Till this morning when I opened the curtains..there she was...or actually both of them,
the father and the mother-squirrel.
In my post awhile ago: (31 march 4Th photo), I had noticed that her nipples were swollen,
so she probably must have babies!

This week I heard from my neighbour K. that the squirrels have young in her tree!
at least she had counted 7 babies!.
Here you can clearly see the mothers swollen nipples...
while she is delighting in her nuts on the feast-table

Oh, how darling! I love the tufts of fir which rakishly adorn their ears. What beautiful creatures!
