Still here...

The weather's been variable lately - mild sunny weather last week, then this:

...followed by a mild sunny weekend which melted most of the new snow. Spring in the Rockies.

I've been making more ogam sets lately. It gives me a nice excuse to be outside on sunny days, when my gardening instincts are stirring but the ground's still frozen. Spring is starting in the cold frame, though:

Soon it will be time to start tomato seeds...

Monday...

Busy reading and researching, also making more ogam sets. A little fresh snow this morning, but now it's sunny and windy. Spring in the cold frame:

But still winter in the garden:

That's all for now...

Just a brief post today to share another picture I took of Titus yesterday in the garage:

Friday...

I was busy Wednesday making an ogam set for a charity auction. I started making these last month when I needed a set myself and have carried on because I enjoy it. There seems to be a local market, and though they'll never be much of a money-maker due to the time it takes me to make one (about 5 hours all told), it's a pleasant craft. I'll have to do a photo series on the process presently like I did for the wire rings.

Finally uploaded some snow pictures from last week's storm. Would you believe there are a yard card and several chairs against the fence?

Wednesday...

Spent a lot of the last few days shoveling snow. We got 17 inches between Thursday evening and midday Saturday, then another 3 inches Monday night. Not my idea of fun! It set a new record for February.
