MORE ABOUT COLTSFOOT

It is one of the first flowers of spring and was used in Britain as a sign of a medical practitioner.  More information and dye instructions can be found  in A Calendar of COmmon Dye Plants by Dee Duke and Rowena Edlin-WHite.  You can get this wonderful dye book on Amazon.  I highly recommend this unique  book.

The coltsfoot has gone to seed, I have picked some seed in hopes it will take along side the road.

BRIMFIELD ANTIQUE SHOW

It’s a beautiful day here in Western Massachusetts and the throngs of people will be at Brimfield Antique SHow.  People will be there as early as 5 am to get the best buys.  My friend Susan always has a booth there.  For anyone who has not been it can take days to see all the wonderful antiques and unique items.

THE ROBIN

When I was getting the second batch of hay I  saw a Robin in the road.  It was just standing there and looked like it was just about full-grown, not someone who had fallen out of its nest.  Hawks were flying over so I decided to take it inside the house.  After 20 minutes it seemed fine and was starting to fly around so I released it by my Crab Apple tree.  It stayed in the tree for an hour or so going from branch to branch and then flew off.  I hope it survives it didn’t mind being held, seeming to understand that I would do it no harm.  Every once in a while you get a glimpse of wildlife up close and its a privilege.
