This photo of squirrel enjoying a winter snack was taken at Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The public garden was founded in 1922 by Joy Morton, who is best known as the founder of the famous Morton Salt Company. Lesser known is the fact that Joy’s father, J. Sterling Morton, was the founder of Arbor Day. The grounds are also home to a library, herbarium, and the Center for Tree Research, but most visitors come to enjoy the spectacular grounds.

She is so cute 😉 Reminds me of one I saw in Brasov
They are terribly cute, Lori. Love seeing so many of them here in the U.S.
