White Squirrels and A Blue/Pink Hydrangea

image

This hydrangea is right beside my back door, it’s protected by the house on the north side and it sure wants to keep on blooming this year…these blooms are small but still beautiful…and they’re all on the same bush. See the little visitor in the bottom right shot.

I caught a few shots of  a couple of our white squirrels, they’re exceptionally hard to get good photos of. I was using a long distance lens so the close up is a bit blurry.

 

I’m editing this post to answer some questions about our white squirrels. We have many on our property and in our neighborhood. They are not common in the town where we live. A small neighboring town has them but that’s about it. They are a bit smaller than the ordinary brown or grey squirrels but they don’t seen to mind. I love to watch them so much and have had a lot of trouble capturing good photos of them. They play with the ordinary brown squirrels and we see adults and babies, they have their nests high in our trees. I’m always vigilant about keeping them safe and have had to make many little boys with their b b guns run. I just can’t stand for them to be injured or killed. I’m probably the mean ole lady in the brick house!!!

Sally and Mary’s blogs are great places to visit today!!!

  1. Great capture! I've never seen a white squirrel before. We have greys around here and once in a while you might spot a redish or black one. Amazing~ ~Jeanne

  4. Hi Becky,
    I saw a white squirrel once when driving near my home...I about ran off the road! :-) I didn't know they even existed! Your hydrangea is gorgeous! My geraniums in the pots on my deck are blooming again, as are my Gerbera Daisies. I think our warmer weather has them confused. It's cold today though, so things are getting back to normal. Enjoyed seeing the pics of the white squirrel!

  15. Hi Becky, When I first saw your white squirrel pictures, I thought it was a white cat... Duh!!!! You are so lucky to have the white squirrels in your area. I have never seen one. Thanks for the info.

    The flowers in your first collage are gorgeous. Love all of those colors.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  16. Beautiful small bloom. And I never knew there were white squirrels. Over here in Singapore. We don't even get to see the common squirrels. Only once in a while I would spot a lone squirrel.

  17. Morning, are the white squirrels Albino? I know that in a few places in the UK there are red squirrels and although we were on Brownsea Island in Dorset in the Summer where they are, we didn't see any!! We have the common grey squirrel in the small copse wood we own over the road to our bungalow, so I often sit in the lounge watching them running up the trees and jumping from branches.

    Lovely hydrangea, great colours.

    Have a good day, Jackie in UK

  20. Well, I've never seen a white squirrel, either, but I think they're as cute as they can be! We only have the gray/brown kind around here, and they're the size of small dogs - we must provide a healthy environment. Thanks for the photos and info, and I hope you have a wonderful Blue Monday and a Happy Thanksgiving!

  21. I've never seen a white squirrel either. Unfortunately regular squirrels are overly abundant where I live and have been known to cause damage.

    Happy Blue Monday and Happy Thanksgiving!

  22. Lucky you to have hydrangeas still hanging onto their beautiful blooms!

    Your white squirrels are so cute! When we lived in NYC, our neighborhood had black squirrels -- coal black. Fordham University in the Bronx has claimed to be the only place with black squirrels, but I know from experience they live in other parts of New York City as well.

    Maybe the first squirrels were like yours, white, and like mine, black -- and that's where GRAY squirrels came from!

  23. Hi Becky,
    Your hydrangea is gorgeous! I love them! The white squirrels are so unique, I've never seen a real one before. Most of our squirrels are small and red. Happy Blue Monday and Happy Thanksgiving.

    Blessings,

  25. Morning Becky, I love hydrangeas, but I don't think they'll grow this far South. Happy Blue Monday and have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  26. The hydrangeas can have different hues even in the same flower . That is their particularity and that make them very interesting. I never see a white squirrel. How strange and how lucky you are to have these animals in your garden.
    Thank you for your kind comment on my painting. I love to paint flowers, particularly the roses and it is true it is not easy but I have a long pratice !o)

  27. Becky, I am just amazed at those white squirrels. I have never, ever seen one before, and I think they are adorable. I'd be right there with you chasing away the BB gun toters.

    Thank you for sharing this. I also love your blue hydrangeas.

    Happy Blue Monday to you...

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  28. Let me re-phrase my last statement. I have never seen a white squirrel in the wild before. I have seen them on blogs, and I never tire of seeing them. They fascinate me! :-)

  29. We have no white squirrels in this area so it is fascinating to see one. The hydrangeas are beautiful and how fortunate you are to have them still in bloom. Have a great Blue Monday and a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  30. Ah the white squirrel! When I was little we had one that would come everyday. He only had three legs and he was such a sweetheart. Our neighbor wanted to shoot him but my dad really let him know that that would not be a good idea! The neighbors wife told him," if you shoot that squirrel there will be no end of the rath I instill on you." The squirrel lives on!!! Sharon

  32. I love your beautiful hydrangea mosaic. I have a similar bush that STRUGGLES to survive, but when it blooms ... it does so in multiple colors too. I confess I've never seen a white squirrel and appreciate your lovely photos and the information too. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours ;-)
    Hugs and blessings,

  33. Your hydrangeas are beautiful but the white squirrel really caught my attention! I thought that there were just an occasional albino few here and there, I didn't realize they are a breed. Way to go on keeping them safe!

  34. That is a hearty hydrangea! Good for her! I don't think I have ever seen a white squirrel?! Really cute!! Hugs!

  35. I think you got good pictures of the white squirrels. The only place I've seen them in person is in Brevard, North Carolina. You've got a pretty hydrangea growing in your yard.
