The critters are nesting

You can tell spring is around the corner!

Once the water from the river receded,
the critters came out of the woodwork.

We watched as two groundhogs started
making a nest in their burrow.

They are so cute!
George says they make a mess in the 'back 40'...
their burrows make holes in the yard.

Good ole' Punxsutawney Phil
said it's going to be an early spring!

So they're ok in my book :)


  1. mother nature at work!..nice pics!

  2. are they like gophers? Do they dig lots of tunnels and holes, or just one.

  3. Those ground hogs can get really big too! We had them in our back yard and they were bigger than the dog. (he was a small dog but still). It is always good to see signs of spring.

  4. Good thing you don't have a garden or you wouldn't think they are cute at all.
