Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

It's Groundhog Day!

Today is February 2
Otherwise known as 
"Groundhog Day"

I've heard that the famous Phil has seen his shadow
predicting 6 more weeks of winter

but that's for Pennsylvania!

Not here,
on the prairie of Kansas

And with the overcast sky this morning,
we were hopeful

But, alas, this afternoon,
the sun came out
For just a little bit
Meaning that our groundhog
Saw his shadow

Six more weeks

of winter on the prairie!

A heavy snow is predicted for Tuesday
and bitter cold later in the week.

This winter seems to hang on!

I do hope that the groundhog is wrong!

Pondy -- looking at our forecast for the next week, I don't think so!
