Those of you who garden know who that character is on our front porch outside our living room door.
He's Mr. Groundhog who, after looking him up on the Internet I discovered is also known as a Woodchuck.
We didn't invite Mr. Groundhog, but we knew he had moved in when the man doing some concrete work for us told me he found quite a large hole leading under our front porch.
Mr. Groundhog seems quite comfy here, but he won't be for long. He'll have to move out or we'll do it for him.
Hmm, what did you say? You want to stay?
No, sorry, you have to go. It would not be good for our dogs to have a meeting with this guy. He could hurt them more than they would hurt him. And, as far as our front porch is concerned, if he tunnels under the porch and retaining wall around our hedges, we could suddenly have everything rearranged above the ground. He's not good for the garden, either, because he eats roots and can wipe out an entire garden from underground.
So, Mr. Groundhog, we're glad you came up to see what all the noise is about as we are having work done outside so we could see you and get a few pictures. They are taken through a screen, but we can still see you!
