Thursday was an on-again, off-again sunny day, and as I arrived on campus before my noon class, I saw a basking groundhog nibbling the spring-green grass in front of Parker Hall until several students walked by and unintentionally scared the creature into some nearby shrubs. It’s just as well, as by the time I began teaching my class, the campus grounds crew had appeared to mow this same patch of green grass: as sure a sign of spring sunshine as groundhogs and shadows are.

This is my contribution to today’s Photo Friday theme, Sunshine.
