Today is Groundhog Day -- the day folklore and festivals bring out the slumbering ground hog to determine if he sees his shadow and predicts if winter will last another six weeks.
For us in the piedmont of North Carolina, it's hard to think of winter lasting - when it hasn't even arrived! Yesterday reached 70F and we're due for another warm day. And though we will have cooler weather this weekend (in the 30s and 40sF), already crocus are in bloom and daffodils are about to pop.
So, in honor of Mr. Groundhog, no matter his prediction, I have posted my painting based on my friend Dori's wonderful snowfall (www.flickr.com/photos/djr-aquarelle/6559071041/in/photost...). Please stop by to see her wonderful, wonderful watercolors!!! Thank YOU Doris for sharing your snow with me!!
This morning, we begin another year of Plant a Row for the Hungry. We've some new volunteers coming in, and it's time to plant our seeds in the greenhouse as we ready for spring. We're in for a bit of rain, so this indoor activity will be fitting.
Hope your day is wonderful -- and we'll see if Mr. Groundhog's prediction is correct!
