Squirrels on the California Shores

During our spring break in Central California, squirrels were seen almost everywhere.
To watch these cute animals was a pleasure!
They were not in my garden digging out bulbs and making a mess with pine cones.
These shots were taken at Pebble Beach.
It is prohibited to feed them, but it was obvious that these animals were used to getting treats from people. 
They were begging.
Feeding squirrels is bad not only for them, but is dangerous for people too. In the area shown at the end of the post, one man was bitten.

 I needed to run away because this one was heading straight for me! 
I think she could sniff the almonds in my pocket.







The following pictures were taken at Morro Bay, California.
  Birds and squirrels: Peaceful coexistance.
  The squirrel was so close to these boys, it could pick their pockets:
" Which pockets? I am just bathing in the sand..."

  Cute as cute can be:

  "Oh, how much I would love to chase those squirrels..."

Tulip Festival-2013 in Skagit Valley, Washington State


Yes, it's that time of the year again when tulips and daffodils are blooming
 in the Skagit Valley of Washington state. 
If you haven't been there yet and live close by, then don't wait! 
As always, we enjoyed the vibrant fields and also visited the wonderful RoozenGaarde display garden. 
The Roozen family business is the largest in the world in growing tulips, irises and daffodils.
I wrote about this festival in my previous posts in 2009, 2011 and 2012 (the list of posts is at the very end), and today I offer just pictures. Enjoy!
