Bloom Thyme Friday

Today it is sunny and cold. I love the sun, BUT it allowed that Groundhog to see his shadow and I was not fond of that. His prediction is that there is 6 more weeks of winter. I am pleading with spring to defy the groundhog and come up with a better plan.

With all that said, Groundhog Day is kinda fun. Here’s what Wikipedia has to say:

This weather lore was brought from German-speaking areas where the badger (German: dachs) is the forecasting animal. This appears to be an enhanced version of the lore that clear weather on Candlemas forebodes a prolonged winter.

The Groundhog Day ceremony held at Punxsutawney in central Pennsylvania, centering around a semi-mythical groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil, has become the most attended.

Yea, it’s fun to hear all about it and see them get dressed up and all … I just hope winter doesn’t go on and on and on until we begin to feel like Bill Murray. #groundhogdaythemovie  😳😳😳

GOOD NEWS: I heard today on Instagram from my friends @maplehurstgardens, located in NJ, that The Groundhog predictions are mostly wrong. #thatswhatimtalkingabout


While we are thinking about spring, I am wondering what are your favorite spring blooms. Here are two of mine:




Dogwood Trees (we have 5)


At just the right time spring will come and we will have the pleasure of watching our garden being reborn. And….

  1. Good morning , This has been the craziest winter. Temps in the 50’s earlier in the week & 12Deg. & high winds this morning in Central Md. Very little snow but 2 yrs. ago we had record snow fall in March. I don’t like it but my monayy’s on the groundhog this year. INo doubt the heater is working overtime in your shed. I am trying that winter milk jug seed starting method I saw on Gingham Gardens & will let you know how it works.
