I have been having a war with the squirrels for a few years now.
When I first planted my garden over two decades ago, they mostly left it alone. But as the years have passed, they have become more and more aggressive. I have tried absolutely everything you can possibly imagine to deter them, but to no effect.
Two activists based out of Hamilton and Toronto put out a call for protests to occur on International Workers’ Day, May 1st, as a show of action against the extensive cuts and damaging policies put forward by the Ontario Conservative leadership. Twenty-six cities in all took part in the march.
This week she invited me to come out to snap some shots of the donkeys and other beasties and to meet Sheila Burns, founder and donkey care taker.
Please check out their web site to see the wonderful work Sheila and the volunteers do to rehabilitate and take care of these lovely donkeys.
There are so many curious and friendly animals there, I couldn’t choose just four or five to post, so here, to warm up your late winter, are some cute pictures of happy donkeys, ponies, cats, pigs and a sheep. Oh, and my lovely friend Mel, who invited me out.
