Warm Days

Early morning visitor Woodchuck Marmota monax aka "Groundhog" "Eastern Marmot"
I have some more photos to edit so will tell you more about him later.

That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

It has been here for awhile but in my internet ramblings today I found a lovely poetry site at Trailing Light

Hope he's not headed to your vegetable patch!

I'm still in awe how you get photos of these animals and birds so close up. I loved the site you found--I've followed her other blog, but wasn't familiar with this one.

of course he is - we are hoping a fence will keep him out but I am afraid he has to move

glad you like the photos and especially glad you enjoy "Trailing Light" I think it is a delightful site.

What a lovely fellow your woodchuck is, and perhaps a local elder of the marmot population as he (or she) is rather grizzled and wise of countenance. Thank you for mentioning Trailing Light by the way! I am still a bit dismayed by my audacity in putting this stuff out there.

I really hope this is an elder who is not bringing along his tribe or we will have to get out the have-a-heart trap...
Sure hope your audacity holds out and you keep on posting!

MB and Jimmy
thank you - thank you for your visits and for commenting - I appreciate the encouragement!!!

Would you like him? He is yours if you want to come get him.
Glad you like Trailing Light, so do I!

Your marmot is a handsome fellow; I hope he learns his place and keeps to his own side of the fence.

Thanks for the link to Trailing Light. I enjoy both kerrdelune's blogs. We're in BC for the next three weeks, so will be commenting infrequently and probably won't blog much, but I'll try to catch up with your posts whenever I can get an Internet connection.

I love these guys. I always see them by the side of the road, in cornfields, etc... they always look so jolly :)
