The Needlework Nutshell

The Needlework Nutshell is going to be late this month. All is well; it’s just late.

vole.jpgOne of the Microtus voles (as opposed to the red-backed voles); I would guess a meadow vole. Voles are mice with short tails. The grassland around the lagoon bustles with these.

  1. Love the photo! I, for one, find this particular vole to be far cuter than the average mouse.

  2. I do, too. It’s got a rounder nose. As I edited the photo, I thought it looked a little like a pika.

    I also think it’s cuter because it’s outside in the grass doing it’s voley thing as it’s supposed to do. Beats the heck out of a meddlesome mouse chewing into the oats and crackers and leaving little brown sprinkles behind. Ick!
