I was looking out the window this morning admiring the siberian irises in bloom when I noticed there was a chipmunk quietly sitting on a trellis looking out at the yard. It didn't seem to bother the chipmunk when I opened a window to get a clearer photo. The trellis is maybe ten feet from the window.


I guess it's a good place for grooming.



The chipmunk eventually decided to leave. I used to have climbing roses on this trellis but the chipmunk traffic was hard on them. The trellis is attached to the deck and is an alternate way to get up and down.


And then there are raccoons. When I put the bluestone path in I assumed it was for humans, but the animals and birds seem to use it as much as I do, although often at night. This was taken as the light was fading.
