in like a lion...

Winter is hanging on a bit too long this year. March started off no different than the previous three months...

Our poor animals have had a long season of trudging through the snow and ice. I know a sheep or two that are tired of hay and looking forward to some green pastures.
The ducks and geese, leaving frozen footprints in the snow, and dreaming of their swimming pool.

But, you know March, a fickle season of temperature swings, daylight savings time, and the official start of Spring. Almost halfway through the month and the thawing and refreezing is a good sign that Spring is on it's way. You really have to watch out for the ice hidden under snow and puddles...ask me how I know!!
Spring trees have had enough, too, and are budding out. Take that Old Man Winter!

Tulip tree.
And inside? Well, inside, has been a colorful season of spinning, dyeing, and knitting. We're getting ready for Heartland Fiberpalooza (March 22 in Winterset, Iowa). Of course, wool and fiber, go on year round for us!

Here's hoping that Winter truly does go out like a lamb. See you in Winterset!
