What a year for Pussy Willows!

We have had a week on unsettled weather, with bright sunny days , unexpected high winds, sleet and rain.   Spring is here but winter is taking what I hope will be its last breath.  It’s turned cold and now we are expecting some snow for tonight  It won’t last long as warmer temps are coming in.   We have had a real warm winter.  It is really interesting that there are still some people who don’t believe in Global Warming..  Our whole country has been hit by floods, tornado’s,  weather that is too warm, these are warnings I fear that much worse is yet to come.

SHETLAND WOOL WEEK

This year’s pattern is out and ready for you to print.  Ella Gordon who knits delightful, whimsical Croft House pillows has designed this years hat.  I hope to make one.  Get yours by going on to the Shetland Wool Week site.  Shetland Wool Week is on my bucket list.

UPDATE ON MAUDE

Its a slow process.  Today Lauren and I will try and trim more wool off of her face.  Her eye is healing but its slow .  SHe doesn’t seem to know  that there is a problem.  Animals are resilient and live in the moment

VIOLET

Violet overnight got all broody.  COllecting eggs and screaming if anyone came near  She settled in the favorite nesting box and the only egg I left in there was hers.   Someone broke her egg I think it was overcrowding.  With two hens plus VIolet in the nest box it was bound to happen.   There are two other very nice nest boxes but they all seem to want the same one .

She’s all fluffed up, ready to keep the eggs warm.

SALVE

The first bach of salve is made and labeled.  I am going to make a dandelion salve soon and a Poison Ivy salve too.
