My Saturday backyard

Groundhog dayA hefty groundhog eats leaves in the backyard. Raises up on its hind legs to glance around between bites.

A gray fuzzy caterpillar wriggles its belly across my screenporch.

2 deer sleep under the trees.

A pair of voices echo through the woods. Boys. Snapping wood. A tree in our forest falls down, dead. The boys cheer. They are stoned out teenage boys knocking down dead trees with sticks.

  1. I am loving the groundhog.

  2. I had never seen one that close before. It was really big.

  3. What does a sleeping deer look like?

  4. Can’t say exactly – they were in the woods and my husband inadvertently came upon them and scared them.
