No-Show Chuck: Confused by this Weather
P.S.: Chuck didn't show himself on Ground Hog's day last year either. We had gotten over a foot of snow between the first and second of February, followed by fourteen below zerooooo on the third. Good Grief! He was frozen in under my garden shed. I don't know if he ever came out. February fourth 2015, started off at four degrees. Hellebores didn't start having flower buds until March 22, according to my nature notes! Today, February 4, 2016, 48 degrees, bare ground, hellebores beginning to bloom, peonies breaking ground. CRAZY!!!
