Flower? in the Garden

While cleaning up the kitchen from dinner last night
HB calls "Just look at the path from the shed".
One of the biggest skunks I have seen in the yard!

HB has been live trapping some of our squirrel population and
 taking them a few miles down the road to enjoy a more serene country life.
The bait of choice whole wheat bread with organic peanut butter.
So it seems some of the PB has leaked onto the pathway.
Tempting to skunks too!
Thank goodness the trap had been put away by this time!!!!!!!!!

We occasionally smell these fellas and see the the holes they leave in the grass looking for grubs
 but haven't really seen them in the fur this summer.
So whoop there he is.

I'm with Deb...reminds me of Pepe Le Pew, a cartoon I loved to watch when I was a kid! And, yeah, I don't think you'd want to try to trap it--unless you had a HAZMAT suit:-D

Oh no! Their 'fragrance' is not one of my favorites. I had a dog that chased them and got sprayed on a regular basis. He used up lots of tomato juice trying to get rid of the smell.

Look at his glorious fur! He's a real stinky beauty.

I love it that you feed the squirrels whole wheat bread and organic peanut butter! None of that cheap unwholesome food for your squirrels! LOL! I hope the skunk didn't hang around too long!
