We just recently passed by Groundhog Day, which I really pay little attention to, but do acknowledge the day, February 2, as the half-way point between the first day of winter and the first day of spring.
Oh my, but I am so ready for the longer daytime hours of light that we, oh-so-slowly, observe during this time of year. The only downside will be that the morning light will soon shift to the evening hours as Daylight Saving Time takes effect (all too soon).
This photo of spring flowers in a barrel planter reminds us of the brighter days to come. Love ya!
