Oh, they started about a week ago just down the drive across from the the three beech trees. The ground under the large hickory tree was covered with squirrel crumbs. This not the calender marks the official passing of summer.
As the big black lab and I go to fetch the paper for Mimi this morning we notice that the crumbs had moved up the long curve driveway to the next unsuspecting hickory tree. It looked like snow instead of crumbs which determined that these indeed were fresh. The one farther down the hill were now a yucky brown.
I looked up to see the unsuspecting varmits but alas they must have moved on to the next tree.
