Halfway through winter - officially
Today is groundhog Day and, for sure, we who live in Ontario have at least six more weeks of winter, no matter what Wiarton Willie says. (Willie is an albino groundhog, famous in these parts for predicting when spring will arrive here.)
This is what's happening nature-wise in my neck of the woods. In the largest square, the grey squirrel was chowing down on tree seeds. Moving clockwise: two crows, the tree seeds the squirrel was eating. sumac berries (NOT the poisonous kind), grass plumes, and crab apples.

I was just starting to feel warm!!!Oh well, another coffee won't hurt me....
I forgot it was Groundhog's Day. I'll have to check the news to find out the forcast.
I like those red sumac berries with their bit of snow.
Wow! An albino groundhog? Gotta listen to him.
Lovely winter mosaic. Hopefully only another month of winter for us ~ although it is 15 here this a.m. but the sun is shining brightly!
I read this morning that Punxatawney Phil, the groundhog in Pennsylvania, predicted an early spring because he couldn't see his shadow. Groundhog Day with Bill Murray is one of my alltime favorite movies, so I gotta go with Phil.
Thanks for sharing your winter collection of shots. Even here in supposedly "balmy" Texas (-15 degrees F with wind last night) it feels like we will have an extended winter!
"Collecting" comics to one of my blogs, I saw lots with Groundhog Day!
All snow are soon gone here on Lolland and we have + degrees ;-)
Willie needs to coordinate better with Phil. :)
Terrific collage capturing various winter scenes. That poor little squirrel looks kinda cold, though!
Love those tree seeds and sumac berries.
Gorgeous! So nice to see the squirrel! =) A very beautyful collage, indeed!! :)
I hadn't thought about groundhog day until I went to Rambling Woods. I love the way the sumac berries look with snow. All the shots are appealing but there's something gorgeous to me about that shot.
I had forgotten about Groundhog Day too. Beautiful wintry photos!
I agree... Phil didn't see his shadow either... but I will believe it's spring when I see it.
these winter pictures are great. Really tell the season.
We don't have groundhogs here but I imagine Spring will be along when it should be. MB
Pretty sure Wiarton Willie did not budge an inch this year, preferring the cozy warmth in its subterranean home ;-P
Happy Groundhog Day, Hope Spring is early although I see nothing but blizzards in North America on the news.
Happy Groundhog Day..today we finally have some sun...Yea.. The squirrel looks fat and healthy.. Michelle
