Just moments before this, Mrs. Groundhog had raised herself on her hind legs, put her paws on Mother Mary’s shoulders, and gave Her a big smooch on the forehead. I ran in to get the camera, but of course, the moment was lost. Mrs. Groundhog, apparently having received a blessing, had turned her back on Mother Mary and, still on her hind legs, was munching away at my flowers.
I’m naming her Grace. What the heck. 🙂
