1. Wait for sunflower to grow nice and big
2. Sneak onto front steps when no one is around and nibble stem just below sunflower
3. Run like the devil is chasing you to safety
4. When you get to a safe distance eat sunflower
Yesterday morning I had the "pleasure" of witnessing this squirrel steal my awesome sunflower from right under my nose. I happen to be standing in my upstairs guestroom looking out the window and caught him in the act. Just sorry that I did not have my camera with me when he actually took the flower from the flower pot. Photos of squirrel by Sheldon!
