HELLO

My computer is running very slow, tried a couple of things today but it only did a little

MORTICIA

Snacks of cantaloupe were served yesterday afternoon and Morticia hopped right down from the nest.

I took this picture and removed the egg that was laid yesterday.

ALL EGGS ARE MARKED NOW.

THE SAP IS RUNNING

I do love this time of year, there are many small syrup making operations in this area and a couple of very large ones.  Davenports in Shelburne is a great place to go.  The food is great and the views are spectacular..  I hope to sugar next year.

COPPER DYE

I found a gallon of copper dye that I had made last fall and dyed this wool.  I like the color it came out but I did have to dip it several times.  The dye I made recently was made for some very old ammonia and didn’t do well, so I have another going.

THE BARN

Lauren, Tyler and Charlie dug trenches and cleaned some of the barn and placed the sandbags in front of the door on Sunday.  On Sunday night we had lots of rain and none came into the barn.  There are still puddles of water but with this lovely warm weather today it will dry up soon.

Many thanks for reading my blog on this sunny day, clothes are drying in the gentle breezes.  Carole
