SIGNS OF SPRING

I just thought that I would share with you a couple signs of spring that I noticed today. It has been a warm sunny day with high winds and the snow has really melted quite a bit although we still have lots left.


The St John River opened up in front of our house today. It's good that it opened up so the melted snow water and rain can go down river. Hopefully we won't have a flood this year. Keeping my fingers crossed.


As you can see there is still lots of snow around but at least we can see green grass at last. 


My begonias are coming along nicely and will be transplanted when a bit bigger.

Here are some of my sweet peppers.  They will be transplanted in a few days if I get the time to deal with it.

 I've been dyeing wool and hooking on my Grandmother's Trunk rug Challenge and I get a little done everyday. Today I had boil my last batch of wool again to remove some dye  as I couldn't get exactly the color I was after also I clean and scrub three calf pens and only had time to  hook for about an hour. I got to get back to it. Sorry no pictures yet...


Thanks for dropping by and I appreciate your comments so much.  Have a great weekend.  JB
