Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Out of Hibernation Already?

Look who I spied out from its winter quarters under my deck!


It's the resident ground hog!


Scurrying across the snow in the perennial garden.


Ducking behind the far wall.

It looks pretty fat for a critter that's been hibernating.

Does this mean spring is here?

Sorry for the quality of the photos but it was moving too fast.

I guess this means a start to my ground hog war!

How cute!! It is rather pudgy...perhaps it's a girl and is "you know what"?!?!?! Although I do not want any under my deck, thank you very much!! I am always concerned that a skunk will hide under there and then the dogs will tangle with it...:)JP

I chased a rabbit out of my garden yesterday, us against the critters.

I seen only one groundhog here, but there are bound to be others!

We don't have ground hogs here in N. Ireland but I assume they cause havoc around your home and garden if you've declared war!
Happy weekend!
