As the coronavirus pandemic continues to ravage the planet and keep populations lockdown inside their homes, people are looking for unique ways to stay entertained.

Vreeland’s mini-animal garden restaurant set-up is one of many instances of people getting creative while on lockdown.

The adorable mini restaurant set-up is located in Vreeland’s garden and features everything squirrels need to enjoy an outdoor meal.

There are mini picnic benches, a coat rail, a menu, which offers a range of nut-focused dishes, at the entrance and a fence around the setting.

Since installing the miniature animal garden restaurant in his front garden, squirrels, blue jays, and a host of other local wildlife have frequented the set-up.
