I am pleased with the rodent’s report; Puxatony Phil did not see his shadow! Translation, we can expect an early Spring. Hallelujah! However, judging by the looks of things outside one would assume otherwise. I should really hold my tongue on this issue, especially since last year I talked smack on Phil and we were bombarded with 3 back to back blizzards during the month of Feb. After a slightly bitchy conversation with Farmer Josh he owned up to being partially responsible for one of them. That made me feel a little better.
I will admit, it is a bit difficult to be garden planning with all this snow and ice on the ground! At least a warm fire and a mountain of seed catalogs is a welcomed distraction from the world outside!
