Early this week much was made of the ground hog seeing its shadow then predicting the end of winter. Forget shadows. Use the sunshine to predict the coming of spring. Yesterday the sun light struck upon Marguerite’s pond. Not so many days ago, it did not rise high enough. Today the winter season is half way over; about mid way between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. The length of the day will lengthen quickly now and you can witness the change looking over Marguerite’s pond.
