We Don't Celebrate Groundhog Day in England

Earlier this week was Groundhog Day in America. It's a day where the nation eagerly watches as
Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog, peeks his head above ground and either sees or does not see his own shadow. If he doesn't see his own shadow, it means spring is on the way. This year though, Phil saw his shadow and forcast six more weeks of winter.


Thankfully, we don't celebrate Groundhog Day in England. I am already seeing signs of life! These may not mean much to you, but these tiny little flowers are a symbol that the dark, dreary days of winter may be coming to an end. Spring--my favorite time in England--is almost here.
