Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Snow Go

A quick photo essay before I take myself off to my first lace group meeting in months.

We still had a lot of snow last Monday, when I took pictures of the winter aconite in bloom.

You can just see through the trees off to the east that the fields still had patchy snow on them.

The yard and our property off to the south still had a lot of snow.

Then on Tuesday, I saw bluebirds!

By Thursday, the snow was in retreat. Thursday night we had our first hard rain.

And now that the yard is dry, Truffles and Ajax want to know, "Can we go out?"

Those are two eager looking pups! It's fun to start seeing the unmistakable signs of spring...

Over the last 30 years I've planted hundreds winter aconite blubs and never seen a single one come up and bloom.

Some rodent must love eating them.

It was fun to see yours in bloom. Also the bluebirds!

Is that the same aconite I give my kids when they have a cough? (Aconite and spongia--wonderful homeopathic remedy for croup.)

It's so awesome to be able to get outside again...

Have your snowdrops bloomed?

Wasn't it nice to see the ground again? There are some large piles around even after 68 degree days. It'll take a while for them all to melt.

Bluebirds! We have Jays in the area (noisy nasty birds) but no bluebirds.
