Peek-a-Boo

I was playing peek-a-boo in the garden yesterday with this furry critter:


His name is Gordie. Gordie the groundhog. And he lives under our shed. He hangs around the garden and eats some of my plants. But I love him, anyways. Yesterday I followed him home and stood on the side and snapped photos every time he stuck his head out thinking I was gone. So much fun. For me. For him? Not so much. Poor bugger.

How was your day yesterday?

  2. The whole time we lived in Aylmer, we never had lettuce from our garden. There was one of those critters that was not living in our backyard but as soon the lettuce was ready, would just come for a day and then without any thanks move out. We also had sunflowers... in august it had the squirrel so happy! grrrr

    Living in our camping, long weekend mean lot of people. We are so happy when it's over and we get the place to ourselves. I am also an introvert, I like people, 2-3 at the time, not hundreds, if you know what I mean LOL

  10. He is so cute! I want to pet him, but that would be the squirrel incident all over again. That is a great shot! It's really nice that you let him live with you in peace!

  12. Hahaha, this is great. You are so funny.

    My day was very nice. I've got a big cleaning next two days ahead. Then when Tim gets out of work on Thursday, we begin our nice long staycation.

    Hot dog.

  13. Gordie is an endearing little guy, especially for a groundhog. I've never been endeared to a ground hog before.

  15. Phenomenal composition, Martha! And darling! If I ever live in a place where I can garden, my garden will be for bees, butterflies and other critters. Kudos to you for sharing!

    1. I wouldn't have it any other way, Louise. Sometimes I fence off sections of the garden to give the plants a chance to grow, but otherwise, I don't mind. They're just trying to live.
