Staying Close to Home

Only one groundhog has been in our yard for over a month.

It looked like it was greeting the sun on this morning.

Now that the weather’s cooled off considerably, the groundhog spends more time basking in the afternoon sun.

It ventures out only to eat.

My husband said this one is a female. They’re much smaller than the males.

Here are two pictures that were taken several years ago.

 The tangled-vine area still exists and probably remains a good food source.
