An ice-cream date outside, ramps in the woods, the dying of eggs...it really must be moving on into spring, don't you think? The calendar and the weather don't always agree, but when Ani looks outside and says "I can't believe the sky it so blue!" or "I can't believe it's raining again!" or "I can't believe how WINDY it is!", it confirms my suspicion that we are in agreement: it is March and it is Spring. Fickle, welcome Spring.

We tried the natural dyes this year - cabbage and onion skins - and they were so beautiful! There was something we didn't do quite right, as the color was wont to rub off in patches, but generally we were so happy with the sun-print look of the plant silhouettes and the deep rich colors. Of course, I had to buy pantyhose for the first time in at least a decade, but the spectre of them lurking in a drawer somewhere is perhaps a small price to pay for art.
|oooh, I love this material! It's so smooth, I like the way it feels!|
Honey, it's called nylon.
