A Startling Sight!

Lush greens, full leaves, taller now.

At times, the garden seems to grow

as if by magic overnight.  Good things come

to those who wait patiently.  By habit

I check our gardens and herbs.  A

new visitor, unwelcome by reputation,

appeared on the driveway by the

parked car.  Tan fur, funny, flat tail.

Who are you?  What are you doing here?

Cautiously still, we observed one

another.  Who is going to make the

first move?   Hiding under the car?

Startled by this stranger, I hoped

my husband might catch a glimpse.

Alas, he missed the odd visitor.  On

short, squat muscular legs, it scurried

away.  In quick fashion.  We could not

see where it meandered.  Could not

find a hole large enough for it to use.

A woodchuck I declared.  Was I certain?

Had it been a cat?  No indeed.  This

was an astonishing sight unseen

around our gardens before. No

return visits yet.  Our vegetables are

enclosed and fenced in.  Had the

gate been left open?  Negative.

Mr. Woodchuck was out of sight and

out of mind.  Our gardens safe for now.

    • Emily, thank you. I believe Mr. Woodchuck is camera shy. I just would like to discover his dwelling place where he hangs out after eating his way through gardens. Enjoy your weekend. oxox
