The only kind of squirrel I like is a ceramic one made by Jonathan Adler!
Our neighborhood squirrels enjoy the juicy blue succulents on the deck in between the tall 50 year old cypress trees.
Thankfully, I also have them planted near the front door, where they are thriving.
I have replanted many of my sister-in-law's patio pots with succulents because her apartment patio gets sun all day long. If I don't hurry up, she will be back in San Diego to her yard, that is much cooler, but also a home to squirrels!
My husband thinks that they are just thirsty and I should put the kitty's water dish back on the deck!
