Glad to see it is spring somewhere, it gives me hope.  I had to plow 6 inches of spring this morning.  :)

Raider Bill, did I see bouganvilla, periwinkle (vinca), and bird of paradise?  I don't think I am familiar with the bottom one.

Coxy, The temperatures here in the winter and early spring are often comfortable but for those of you who have allergies it is certainly a time for a stuffy head, itchy eyes and a runny nose.  It will be 98 with 90% humidity before too long here and those of you in more temperate zones will be the envy of us.

Yup, the yellows have been showing for month, but these whites caught my eye today.

We've got "whites" showing around here, too. They're about 4' deep, I mean high, and still growing :D.

Yes, Phil was forced to acknowledge that spring won the popular vote at #notmygroundhog.

Nice thing about Virginia is, that the Spring comes several times every year and I enjoy it every time  ;D

  There are a lot of flowers down here also, but I have not seen the honeybees taking advantage of the weather and flowers. I am not going to plant anything until I see a lot more bees flying :)

   This morning while enjoying my second cup of coffee and looking out across the back field I saw the first groundhog this year, yesterday I saw a Robin but I think some of them never left this year.

We saw robins too!  We also thought people would tell us we're crazy, but I noted there were five robin's vs. one groundhog, so spring DID win the popular vote.  :)

I just read several people calling them a groundhog.  Does anybody use the term woodchuck or is it just me?

We call them woodchucks here, too. It is also a name given to people of a less refined and criminal nature.
