Punxsutawney Phil, the weather-predicting groundhog, may have seen his shadow and predicted 6 more weeks of winter but we're already gearing up for Spring here at New Beginnings Garden Center! We bet you're getting a little restless too with the ho-hum days of winter but Spring really is just around the corner. There have been reports of crocus and daffodils coming up in Minnesota already! That's a wee bit early for them to peek through the ground and they may not bloom because of their early emergence but it's still a sign that Spring isn't too far away. Here's an actual photo taken on January 31, 2017 near Mankato, MN. Go back to sleep, little daffodils!
