Fiber Roving ~ April 2019~~~ Spring is here, the snow has almost completely melted, except in the heavily shaded places, my geese have been so happy with a wide variety of puddles to splash and play in. Had a visitor last night that upset them, their odd honking alerted me, it was late evening, and when I went to check on them an immature goshawk was sitting close to a new nest, I yelled, waved my arms, the dog barked and he was gone in a flash. They are laying and trying to determine where t... Read Full Post »

Fiber Roving March 2019 I think of March as the beginning of spring. Lately people have been telling me that spring is April or May or even June. Today to a good day to confirm spring beginning in March. The sun is warm and the snow is sliding off all my buildings and making dripping sounds on the deck. I have been shoveling snow for 2 days now off the deck and the side porch. My daughter was with me Friday, and she dig out the small door on the shop (where all my animal feed is) to get in...

Fiber Roving February 2019~~~~ It has been an interesting winter beginning with a wet and rainy Oct and Nov, then a wet snow that reminded me of midwestern winters, and then snow, snow and more snow.

The woods are beautiful, the trees dressed in white, even the birch are holding handfuls of snow within their bare branches. This is still the quiet look inwa... Read Full Post »
