It’s hard to believe it’s the middle of March, and we are already seeing signs of spring here. I’m certainly not complaining!
Neither are the bees. They were up bright and early this morning.
We fed them this afternoon and I wish I had remembered my camera. I’m so tickled at how quickly they’ve built up their hives so early in the year.
The daffodils are welcoming spring with wide open arms.
The horseradish is making it’s appearance.
The asparagus is peeking out of the ground.
And the rhubarb is happy for the early start.
Bobby Lee has started greeting each morning loudly from the top of his favorite stump.
Spring seems to be coming early this year. We’ve had such beautiful weather for the past week or so. Soon we’ll be working in the yard on most days. I can’t wait!
I spent much of last fall and winter learning to knit. I got most of my practice knitting dish cloths. Lots and lots of dish cloths.
And then I graduated to slippers – and I knitted a few pair of those.
I knitted a headband with a flower to wear in the winter and Dolly modeled it for me.
My friend, Mary Ann, welcomed her first grandbaby this year, and I knitted this oven hanger/tea towel for her.
I’ve started several projects that I haven’t finished, but the one I’m really excited about right now is a Feather and Fan scarf, made with Conshohocken Cotton yarn. It’s only 4 inches wide and intended as a spring/summer scarf. I love the pattern, and I love the yarn.
I’m sure knitting will slow down as the warmer weather gets here and the daily outside chores mount. In fact, I need to get busy starting some seeds and getting potatoes in the ground!
Have you been working on fun projects over the winter? And are you seeing early signs of spring this year?
