Spring is in the air

Sunday I saw some pretty wild behavior in the yard. There were two squirrels chasing around the Crape Myrtle tree outside the dining room window. But it wasn't the usual manic chasing that squirrels do. The chasee would hurry, but not a full run, forward a few feet and then stop. The chaser would wait a few seconds and then follow. This repeated several times over a couple of minutes. Occasionally the back squirrel would smell the rear of the front squirrel. I never saw them doing more but it sure looked like courting behaviour to me. So regardless of what the groundhog might have said, spring its in the air.
