Seeing Shadows

Happy Groundhog's Day.

Puxatawney Phil says six more weeks of winter. Not a difficult prediction to make since we are exactly six weeks out from the Vernal Equinox, the first official day of Spring.

So the groundhog saw his shadow, as he does almost every year. But here in the shadow of winter, under the drifts of snow, I dream of spring. The cool wet rainy days of green springing forth will come sooner than we think.

Now where did I put those seed catalogs?
