I always said I'd shoot that groundhog one of these days...
...so here's a shot of him.
Now that he can't get at my veggies, I think he's kind of cute. Brian says this is a literal example of good fences making good neighbors. We built a good fence to keep him out of the garden, and now he's being a good neighbor by eating weeds instead, so we don't have to whack them as often. I'm going to start referring to him as our "lawn service."
Edit: Okay, so I realized that my little pun on "Memorial Day" doesn't really work, because the word "marmoreal" refers to marble rather than marmots. So it's sort of a pun on a pun, which is hardly worth making at all. Phooey.
