Groundhog Day 2017

Happy Groundhog Day! We have quite a few groundhogs around here, Right now they are hibernating and their hearts are slowed from 80 beats a minute to 5 beats. It is cute to see them pop out of their burrows in the spring and go searching for food.



So, these are our groundhogs. Do you have any around?

“No need to panic over alarms or surprises, or predictions that doomsday’s just around the corner, Because God will be right there with you; he’ll keep you safe and sound.”

Proverbs 3

I've never met a groundhog up close and personal. They are rather cute.

Love your photos, yes we have groundhogs here in the Ozarks. I saw several last summer crossing a parking lot to get to a pond. They look quite adorable! But are fast!

Oh, yes we have groundhogs...one got locked in our garage and knocked all kinds of things down. We didn't know it was in there, and it must have panicked when the door shut. It lives under this little building of the neighbor behind us.

If I have ever seen one, did not know it. I doubt they are around here. He is confused tho as one day it is 80 and the next 40.

I think I have only seen a Groundhog once in my life.

We had one several years ago --and he kept eating our plants/flowers.. We had to block his hole (when he wasn't in it) ---which forced him to move on to somewhere else. Haven't had any since...

Hugs,
Betsy

Yes we have them. I see one every summer sticking his head up in the air in our back pasture. He saw his shadow yesterday. :)
