An old German superstition holds that if a hibernating animal casts a shadow Feb. 2 – the Christian holiday of Candlemas – winter would last another six weeks. If no shadow was seen, legend said spring would come early.
This year, both Wiarton Willie and his American cousin, Punxsutawney Phil, predicted another 6 weeks of winter a few days ago on February 2 (Groundhog Day). Yet this week we are experiencing temperatures in the double digits (Centigrade).Today was 11 degrees and more of the same tomorrow.
In front of little plaza near our office is a lawn that catches a lot of the sunshine since the lawn faces south.
Lo and behold that lawn was a beautiful green colour. It was a refreshing sight to see that patch of turf. Don't know if it was starting to grow, but it almost seemed like it was ready to be fertilized by the Turf King technicians.
We still have a fair amount of snow piled up on lawns and on the parking lots. Of course, the snow in piles always takes a lot more sunshine before it disappears.
The sunshine and above freezing temperatures has started to thaw the phones. A bit of spring-like weather and people's thoughts turn to the yards and gardens.
