The history of Groundhog Day. “Phil“ saw his shadow so, reportedly, we’ll have six more weeks of winter. WINTER?? It hasn’t been evident in North Carolina. Feels like SPRING to me!! I’ve been thinking about bird houses, hummingbird feeders, and possibly some urns or boxes with flowers. The local weatherman says it may get to 70 degrees this afternoon (54 degrees at 8 A.M. as I publish this blog). ~~ No groundhog in my back yard but I just counted fifteen birds feasting on the smorgasbord.
