Yes the adorable avocado eating varmint is eating the flowers on the Schefflera tree. Yes, it is the kind you can grow indoors, In Florida they make 40 to 50 foot trees.

Below shows how high up he was, bellied up to the flower buffet.

we find the sticks minus the flowers and wondered what happened. Now we know

Photo includes 1 Loblolly Pine, 1 Seagrape, 2 Schefflera trees, one corner of our Jungle

Your squirrel is pretty. Very different colors than the ones here. Must be the avocados.

Amy Burzese said...

Scoundrel. You have the most interesting trees and plants !

Ann said...

I've never heard of this kind of tree but it's pretty. When I first saw the pictures it almost looked like a berry garland strung in the trees.
That squirrel obviously finds them most delicious

A beautiful jungle complete with wild life.

I have never seen flowers grow like this, so close to the branch! They almost look like red berries, that is what I thought they were at first. You are RIGHT, Squirrely Boy is laying across a huge buffet, I should be so lucky to find one this big! Loving this and I have a huge smile on my face.

No kidding! If you hadn't told me, I would have thought that it was some berries you strung on a wire. Amazing. And great photos!
