The Day After the Challenge

The Blogging A To Z Challenge is over, and I haven’t seem a ‘We survived it’ badge, so to appease Hickory I’m going with this one.



And–I’m adding this mid-day–here’s the badge Hickory was looking for! We’ll get it on our website border.


Today we squirrels feel like a good rest. You human readers might as well, so here’s a good spot to lounge in the branches. That’s something Hickory has taught me to enjoy over the last year.

Flowering Cherries

Even with our gentle spring rains, this tree provides plenty of cover, and the pink petal drifts catch at my heart every time I see them.

So time for a few announcements. Some time in the last week, the blog passed 75 followers. Thanks for joining us new readers! We hope you’ll enjoy your minutes with us each day.

Those numbers prompted me to look at others. You may not have noticed, but we sport a little badge on the side identifying us as members of The Nature Blog Network. We’re listed as a Backyard blog with them, because of course we talk about Backyard Habitats. My goal when we joined Nature Blog Network a year ago on May 23 was to be on the first page of listings for Backyard Blogs. We made it last June have hovered around the 32 position, but with all of our Challenge activity, we’re up to spot 24 in the Backyard group of 124 bloggers, and spot 371 out of all 2470 Nature Network bloggers. Not bad for four squirrels!

We also have a Facebook page if you haven’t been over to ‘like’ it. We could use some love there!

Have a great spring day! Enjoy the petals!
