A groundhog visited a labyrinth I have in my back yard the other day, believe it or not.
We live in the suburbs, close to downtown, but we have a surprising amount of wildlife that visits our backyard. I have told you about our wild bunny who comes and meditates in our flower garden.
The other day, I also mentioned our groundhog who visits our backyard about once a month, rain or shine, all throughout the year and just trots around and checks out the place. I think he wants to see what’s new.
You can see pictures of him and Mr. Bunny in real life here.
I also mentioned the stone labyrinth I built in our back yard the other day. You can see pictures of that here.
Anyhow, the other day we looked out our back window and, I kid you not, there was Mr. Groundhog. In our stone labyrinth. So, of course I had to do a watercolor painting of him. And this painting isn’t quite accurate, as he was at the edge of the labyrinth rather than at the beginning of it.
But I do like to think we are providing a contemplative space for both people and wildlife.
