{dirt 60631} ... they brought two friends, who brought two friends, who also brought two friends

This morning when I went outside I gasped at the site of the branches of the Pagoda dogwood bent down to the ground. As I walked closer to determine what disaster had struck overnight (afterall, it didn't storm last night) a marauding herd, 20 or so, squirrels ran from the branches. Fortunately, the branches bounced back with no damage. This year there's a BUMPER crop of berries on the Pagodas and with it has come a bumper crop of squirrels. The feeding frenzy is on and in a few days there won't be a berry left on the trees. Hopefully the squirrels move on to greener pastures in someone else's garden!
