ROSEMARY HARRIS: I never thought much about GroundHog day until I saw the movie (yikes it was 1993) with Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell. Still hysterical and at the risk of sounding like a goody-goody - which we all know I'm not - it still has some lessons which every year I get a huge kick out of watching Bill Murray learn.
So.. the deal is if he sees his shadow, he's afraid and runs back into his whatever and we have another six weeks of winter. But - uh - isn't it a good thing if it's sunny instead of cloudy?
Today it was sunny and 60 degrees in New York. I intend to not see my shadow tomorrow - even if it's there. It hasn't been a horrible winter but I wouldn't mind if it ended soon. Anyone else feeling the rumblings of spring?
I can't wait to move all of my container plants back outside. And I won't mind not having to remember where I put my gloves.
What will you do first and what will you miss the least when winter finally ends?
