Friday Night Flicks: Thinking About Spring

It is just approaching the end of the first week of February, and I have been encountering harbingers of Spring. The chickadees have been singing “Spring’s here!” and engaging in small territorial squabbles around the bird feeder, Punxsutawney Phil forecast a short winter after not seeing his shadow on February 2, and garden catalogues have been arriving. Since some of us are already thinking about the growing season, here’s a short video of Susan Mills‘ Garden Ledger.

 

 

Of course, where I live the groundhog’s prediction of spring beginning in six weeks is unlikely to come true. (It has happened, but not recently as the weather patterns seem to have shifted to later springs and longer autumns.) Reflecting the spirit that keeps Canadians going through the winter, here is Rick Mercer’s take on The Seven Day Forecast.

 

 

Perhaps if we all spend the weekend wishing for it, Spring will come sooner.

    So many interesting posts, Cathryn, and great links to other artists’ work besides your own. Time to say thank you and happy new year. Had to come out of my tunnel here in Ottawa to comment because even though the groundhog is AWOL, Rick Mercer always banishes the cold and the clouds!

      Glad you are enjoying the blog, and thanks for the new year wish. Could not resist the Rick Mercer clip, so I am glad that it brought you at least a little way out of estivation. ; ]
