Predictions of a early spring...according to "Phil"

I feel like winter is just getting started, but according to "Punxsutawney Phil" spring is just around the corner.  On Saturday, February 2, Phil emerged from his habitat and failed to see his shadow.   This is 1 of only 16 times in which an early spring is predicted.  Regardless if Phil sees his shadow or not, we still have 6 more weeks of winter, with March 20th being the spring vernal equinox.

Here are some signs of spring around my house!


Mums starting to grow.
Flowers on some type of evergreen bush.

Rhododendron bud


Hastas peaking up out of the ground
