If you can't beat 'em, feed 'em

So yesterday when I was at the grocery store I decided to buy some bird seed.  For days I've heard about this big snow storm that was going to hit our area and I thought if my oldest didn't go to preschool, we'd make peanut butter bird seed ornaments to feed the birds.  As I was grabbing the bag of bird seed, I noticed they sold squirrel feeders.  They are a wire contraption that you open and put in a dried corn cob. 

I've had my share of frustration with the squirrels in my yard.  Mostly I don't mind squirrels.  Except the little critters will dig up some of my potted plants when I get them in the spring and summer. So that annoys me.  But I decided to put all of that aside and buy one of the squirrel feeders.

When I got it home and decided to put it up before the snow got here, I had to laugh at the tag I took off the feeder. It says, "If you cant beat 'em, feed 'em".  And that folks pretty much sums it up for me. LOL

It looks like the squirrels haven't discovered the feeder. So I'm sure I'll be peeking out the window a lot to see if I can catch a glimpse of one of my fur flower foes having a snack. 

Hope you are having a great day in your neck of the woods!

Good luck with your feeders. I know the little critters will appreciate it.
