Three Groundhog Nibbles (2021)


Morning songbirds call

Acorns ripe fall to the earth

Repast for a star


My carrot awaits

Olentangy riverside

Thankful groundhog smiles


Feast on crunchy snacks

Under waving canopy

No day like today



Groundhog in Columbus
Spring: the first groundhog of the season


Groundhog eating a carrot in Columbus
Summer: eating a carrot thrown from our balcony
Groundhog eating an acorn
Fall: eating an acorn
A carrot in front of a groundhog burrow
A Carrot Offering at the Groundhog Tree
(where Mama Groundhog and her little ones live)
