Spring has arrived, if you look closely

The snow has finally melted and I have actually seen tiny green shoots in my herb garden. I never remember what is planted where, but I think these will be those tiny yellow daffodils.  I can hear songs of the springtime birds, see vultures gliding up high and my hens are laying like crazy.  Spring is here, if one looks closely.

Other growing changes around Crow's Foot Farm involve lumber, roofing supplies, new windows and doors and a talented group of builders.  We are having our garage turned into a rughooking workroom for me.  I am so excited to have a nice big room to spread out in and not worry about the wool dust gathering in the corners.  There will not be a dye kitchen, but that’s OK.  I’m still a novice dyer, so my regular kitchen will do just fine.  The work is going fast and I hope to be pulling loops in the new room by June.

There’s a lot of springtime beauty out there and I see more and more of it every day.

Most of my hens lay eggs in shades of brown, but a few lay blue or green eggs.
