A few years ago I was staying with a friend in Finland, and took many, many walks through the woods and forests that surrounded her home. The squirrels were a particular delight to watch, and I was entranced with the beauty of their fur, which changed according to the season. A beautiful chestnut red in summer, and sublime shades of cream and grey in winter.
