Thank you, macdoum for the message! Tell my sincere greetings to your hubby, please! :nod:

Yes, Little boy could have a name. What if you give it, please :D My head and heart are still upside down because of the death of my dearest friend, Girju (2nd September). I knew that it may happen when ever, that old he was.. But I could not know how hard it would be... There he has his place now behind the hazel and dog fence (there are yet Girju's parent, mother, and my two cats). Nanu does not want to go close to the place.. But I have been there and cleaning the surroundings of the last resting place of my most important animal friends..under an old spruce..

I have taken some photos of squirrels when I have noticed them during the last days.. Little boy and Silk ear I have seen, and birds, tits, and also wood pecker, but no other squirrels.

I will still add here some photos a bit later. There is a new Topic for the Finnish Fall time, but this summer topic needs some photos more... Summer has gone, it vanished in one night..Life goes on, squirrels will be there...I will not forget them, how could I..

Thank you, visitor.. I have been cleaning my little forest corner cemetery, somehow it is comforting or something like that... Ravens make their talking there close by.. :rolleyes: The fence has to be prepared e.g. there had been grown tens of small aspens all around and they are not allowed to invade that place... 8-)

In the day we had buried Girju under the spruce, in the evening the light in the air was odd there under the spruce..

A bit later there there begun an exceptionally light show in the Westerns sky..

Yes, visitor. It was almost frightening. I am not used to adjust the settings of my camera, but that is how the sky looked...maybe not 100% exactly 1:1.. I have not edited those photos.. Later the sunset sky was dark red, incredible, odd.

I think,Olga that it was a last goodby from Girju..a salute,an adieu.
Your heart must be heavy,as mine is too. :sad: life gives and life takes away..but it is very sad for the ones who stay behind.
I am pleased that his final resting place is near to you.
