More snow - two nights in a row. I know it won't last long. It looks so pretty covering the hemlock trees in the woods. Winter, I will miss you.....
Just up the road, the sap is being collected in this very large 250 gallon tank. Our neighbors will empty it every day when the sap really starts running. Around here, we call sap "liquid gold."
Down at the farm The Farmer grew up on, where our sheep winter and spend part of the year, there's some black gold going on the field. The Farmer's brother (the other farmer) has been sharing his cow manure. Here, it is being spread on one of the fields that isn't too wet to drive on.
Looks pretty nasty, doesn't it? But it will help the pastures grow.
A yearling lamb birthed this cute little black and white baby yesterday. It's doing great. Very curious about my camera....
And then there is this......
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
