Well, folks, today is Groundhog Day. In case you are not local and don't know, I have a very large, very fat groundhog that lives in my own back yard. Yes, he looks delicious, thanks. Very fat and sassy. (See him? Doesn't he look delicious?)
Today, he has predicted early spring. I didn't have my camera this morning (the photo is from a couple summers ago), but he was out, about, and waddling happily about my yard this morning. Smart groundhog. It was 75 degrees here yesterday, and its supposed to be just as warm today. Then it should fall back into the 50s. I am going to have Mosquito Madness here this summer!
So, folks, that's the scoop here from Fredericksburg Flemming. Get ready for your daffodils. Trim your roses. Plant your lettuce. Then let the groundhogs eat the lettuce.
