Spring is in the air - 24 of 365

Sitting out on the back steps the other day, I saw signs of spring popping up - flowers starting to bloom, birds fluttering around, squirrels...well they're always around.

I've recently started buying bags of oranges from the local farmer's market. One bag can last me a few weeks, but I start to feel the pinch when they're getting a tad too old. But what else can I do with them?
Then I found these instructions from HGTV on making bird feeders out of orange skins. So I used what I had laying around my kitchen. Extra oranges, almond butter (that I'm not too fond of but haven't really found a use for yet), raw sunflower seeds and peanuts.

I'm sure I'll try treating the squirrels (who will feed off of this than the birds well, the piggies) to surprises in the baskets - different nuts, maybe fresh berries, raisins, etc. What did they do to be this spoiled?
