This morning in Brightwood Park I found a squirrel making a new home inside a broken tree with front and back entrances. The fellow probably just finished shopping to get prepared for the stormy weather this afternoon and tomorrow. The owner greeted me and appeared to be quite proud of the home. I did not ask for a house tour considering the size of the place.
Included is a photo of a tree on the shore of the small pond, with mushrooms forming a ladder-like pattern on it. I guess mushrooms have the professional sense to build a community with houses evenly spaced out.
I am a frequent visitor of Brightwood Park and enjoy sharing my discoveries.
Brightwood Park is on the North end of Prospect Street. Go past Franklin School and look for the entrance on the left.
