So today is Ground Hofamily-vacations-groundhog-dayg Day, and it does not matter if the poor animal sees his shadow or not, there will be 6 more weeks and winter.  The good news is we are now exactly half way between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.

Pretty soon the tulips will start peaking through the winter ground, even it it’s snow covered.  That’s one reason I love tulips, they are one of the “early” flowers.

Today is my traditional day to make sure that my seed and plant order is ready to be placed.  I like to get it in early so I can start planting in the greenhouse and sun room.  That ensures I’ll have good sized plants to transfer into the gardens about 8 weeks after they were started.

Yes Ground Hog Day is important to me, but why can’t we just let the poor animal sleep while we place our seed orders.
