“Awfully sorry, missus. I upset your apple cart!”
Meanwhile mother was busy re-lining her burrow
Having brought her babies out, she used the opportunity to clean house.
“If you see my tail like this, you run home, you hear?”
Mother continued to rush about
Peeking cautiously from under the sumac,
…this baby was a little hesitant at first.
The sibling was not!
It jumped in with both feet.
Sparrow for size comparison
The babies having emerged, extra carrot was called for
I have such an urge to cuddle…
Look at that face!
“Mum said sniff the air.”
“Am I doing it right?”
“A review of my first day out?”
“It’s not like I was given a choice, is it?”
“Mum said ‘scram’, so we did.”
“But on balance, the grub’s better out here.”
“Mum told us to say ‘thanks’.”
“And to look cute.”
“Will this do?”

Thank you, Carolyn, it will do, and I now feel like cuddling!
Beatrix Potter would love this family!
Oh my … it seems whether you are human or animal, the house sometimes needs to be cleaned a bit! Hmm, and they do like those carrots – you surely don’t just buy one bunch at the shop at a time 😉 … love their facial expressions!
Now they have to eat like crazy all summer so they can hibernate in October.
Do you provide coffee as well?
Family love. Great photos.
Those babies are so cute. It is good of you to supply carrots.
Best wishes, Pete.
