Squirrel torture

With torture being in the news so much recently. it made me think of this bird feeder we saw on the Parkside Garden Tour last year, one of the many garden tours around Buffalo. I don’t know how well it reads in the photo, but the owner of the birdhouse has attached a metal slinky around the post that holds up her bird feeder. I asked her if it was an effective squirrel deterrent. She said no, but it slowed them down and they were much more entertaining to watch trying to get up the pole. Wish I had squirrel pictures to show you.

For the squirrels around my garden, I’m considering water-boarding.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.

  1. Torchure out – deportation in. I believe they're considered food in England, so perhaps when you've got a container half full, give me a call & I'll toss mine in with yours.


  2. But are you violating the Geneva Conventions?


  3. Barabarapc,We could save the cost of postage if we just acquired a taste for them. I still dream of a SLT (Squirrel Lettuce & Tomato sandwich).jodi,In the words of the recently- departed vice president, “So?”


  4. Too funny–this one screams for a YouTube video! Since when did the Geneva Conventions say anything about slinkies?


  5. lostlandscape,Oh, YouTube, that would be good! And since I’ve never actually read the Geneva Conventions, I cannot say, beyond all doubt, that slinkies aren’t mentioned.


  6. The slinky needs to be electrified.
