My garden, it appears, is turning into something of a "development". There are signs of building everywhere, as the image below evidences.
There are creatures at work - building, renovating and refining. There are altercations about occupancy and tenancy. There is, in short, a population explosion across the realm of my garden.
The reason is probably a simple one. It's a fine neighbourhood with many benefits and features.
For a start there is very fine dining to be had in the form of an indoor restaurant, which, although usually offering service, seems to have become something of a take-away. A sort of, "Oh look, guys, there's this huge basket full of nuts... It's just waiting for us!"
There are also several outdoor cafes which have proven to be a huge hit and tables are generally fought for.
There also happens to be a rather fine spa facility.
And there's a recently added bar which has been a big hit.
In short, my garden is a squirrel paradise. And don't they let me know it!
Ah well, at least they're generally willing to pose for the camera.
