It didn’t look impressive, just a weed growing in the gutter. But when I asked the husband to grab a ladder and remove it?

And unclogged with a screwdriver.

Piles of lovely dark potting soil were packed in there for what I can only surmise were nefarious purposes.

It was momma red squirrel, I know it.

History disagrees.
