It's January...

... almost time for the daffodils to make their appearance.

I'm originally from, uh, um, north of here and daffodils blooming in February is just going against the laws of nature where I hail from. We used to have to wait until at LEAST the end of March and yet I snapped this picture tonight (because even though the daffs are on the rise, we are still leaving the house before sunup and returning after sundown) showing not only the greenery, but an actual flower that can barely contain itself until Ground Hog Day.


The bottom line is: Spring isn't far away.

The official GHD site is here.
And as long as we're talking about Phil, Punxsatawney or otherwise, there's always Phil's Head.

Happy B-Day Karen-fellow Aquarian!
John...our daffy-dils are equally confused. They pay no heed to groundhogs.

Karen says, "Thanks! Same to ya'!"

I think they know what they're doing and maybe WE'RE the ones that are confused...
