February 2nd is Groundhog Day.
Apparently the little blighter saw his shadow today and dashed back into his burrow. I think this shadow thingy is just a bunch of malarkey you know. He probably freaks out at seeing all the people milling about. Shock of his life...poor thing.
My backyard this afternoon.
We have been getting quite a bit of snow....nice fat fluffy flakes that cover all the branches like icing. It's pretty and it's deep There is a patio there and steps down. The bird feeder is in the grass pathway below the patio. You can see that the bench on the right is buried up to the seat.
