Happy Groundhog Day!

Evidently Punxsawtawney Phil thinks it will be another six weeks of winter. However, competing groundhogs are all agreeing that it will be an early spring. See the Wikipedia article about Groundhog Day, and enjoy this charming picture.

We have occasional groundhogs at our house. They mostly come when the peach tree is ripe enough that the peaches are hitting the ground. They can't seem to resist ripe peaches. They look like they are wearing over-sized fur pajamas. But they can really move surprisingly fast! If they feel threatened, they gallop away to the back.
