Hello, my name is Tufty, I am an American Grey Squirrel and I am stoned!
My favourite passtime is to collect pebbles from this wonderfully fine path. They are nice and round and about the size of a nut. The fact that I am the only squirrel that has discovered this pebble path is a bonus.
The pebbles are a precious thing and they need to be hidden from other squirrels. I bury them in the lawn to keep them safe. Sometimes I dash to next door's lawn and bury them there. The other squirrels will never find them. They are mine. Sometimes I go to the other gardens and bring pebbles to bury in this lawn. No-one will know!
Oh, and by the way - when that strange human comes out of the house and scatters bread bits across the lawn, I can bury the bits in the raised beds at the top of the garden. Clearly I am smarter than the average squirrel. Now - what shall I do next.......I wonder if any of those flowerpots contain crocus bulbs?
