Ground Hog Day!

This is our groundhog, inspired by the book "Go to sleep Groundhog!". We also celebrated Candlemas/Brigid's Day by lighting candles at our meals and having Candlemas Crepe's. We talked of the return of longer days and read a story of Brigid. Our week celebration will continue by making our own candles from beeswax, baking a Feather Cake, making a Brigid doll from fresh rosemary and bit of early spring cleaning.

We also went into the garden and clipped some branches from my forsythia bush. We bring them in each February for forcing. There were already a few yellow flowers open! The lovely signs of spring...
