Spring peeping

Flower spring beauty 2

Watch where you step! Spring beauties are out and under foot all over southern Maryland! I haven’t heard the spring peepers yet but others have been enjoying their chorus for weeks.

flower quince

Guess I missed out on forcing quince this year! Must try to remember next spring.

flower daffodil

So many of these daffodils grow everywhere down here that I think of them as ‘wild’.

The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
