I remember last year at this time looking at the areas I planted those Yellow Mammoth Crocuses and Species Tulips in the fall. How were they doing with no snow cover and temperatures bouncing between the high 30's and the low teens?
This year the procumbens juniper is long buried, the dwarf cut-leaf maple is barely peeking out, even the handrails in the rockery are covered with snow!

Mrs. Groundhog has been a regular resident at the nearby historic site for years now. We don't have snow here, but I haven't seen that groundhog's hide yet either.

Hi there eclayne,

This has been a funny year weatherwise. Do you have photos of the Yellow Mammoth Crocuses? I would love to see them!

Hiya Gloria,

The latest this year is he didn't see a shadow. Early spring? Let's hope so! ^_^

Take good care,

Hi Ben,
Here's a pic of the Yellow Mammoth. I haven't seen 'hide nor hair' of our resident Ground Hog family. But then the wood pile they live under is one big snow bank. I keeping seeing images from the movie and can't help chuckling. As to injecting something different into the routine, that's always good advise and Thank You!

Hi there Evan,

Beautiful photo and beautiful crocuses! Would you at all be interested in setting up a trade of sorts?

Starz had a marathon showing of the movie. I caught it a couple times yesterday. It never gets old for me. You are very welcome and I thank you too!

Take care,
