Because I had to….

.

We had a spell of wicked dry weather this summer. No rain for weeks… so everything was brown and dry.

.

.

Including the chucker family. They’re too short to reach the bird bath I kept filling, so I took to offering them a drink on their level.

.

.

I’d never watered woodchucks before and wasn’t sure how they’d take to it….

.

.

But the poor thirsty things ran right to the bowl as soon as I walked back into the house.

.

.

Guess they needed something to wash down those weeds.

    1. I’ve heard it credited to 13th century English, to the Salem witch trial, and to the mayor whose campaign for state house was sunk by his affair with the actress who played the wicked witch of the west. Any way you look at it…. it’s quintessentially New England.
