Sunset through the pine trees

A large row of pine trees sits on the west side of our house and gives our backyard tons of shade during the summer. They’re gorgeous, majestic in size, but they’re home to a host of obnoxious squirrels that like to taunt Chuck and Coco. I’m a huge animal lover, yes, but sometimes they’re so loud and belligerent that I’d like to walk up and flick them in the forehead.
