My, how much has changed in just a few short weeks! We have gone from bits of snow and brown grass, to green leaves and even blossoms. And it is only April! It is unheard of around here!

We headed down to Kelowna for Easter weekend. It is a grueling drive to make with toddlers, but so nice to see family.Before we left, there was still quite a bit of snow in the yard.
I have a beautiful selection of lichen dyes now. Almost time to start knitting my sweater?Letharia vulpina on the left and Umbilicaria on the right.

We've had some wild weather lately, including a thunderstorm and a couple of hail showers. The snow is still here, but is slowly melting. And in lieu of actually having my hands in the dirt, I have been browsing garden pictures to find inspiration. I came across some beautiful driftwood and stained glass garden sculptures and wanted to give it a go for my garden. I melted pony beads in the oven and used an old fence post for my sculpture. Not bad.
