The calendar says spring begins today. Yesterday we took a brief tour of the roses and were surprised to see new growth on them and the merest hint of buds beginning on the lilacs.

This morning we woke up to a new inch of snow and a Winter Storm Warning for tonight. In fact we're supposed to get another 6-8" by Friday. Nothing unusual, this is known as sprintime in the Rockies! lol

We are nowhere near 'tulip time' outside, but the tulips are coming along very well inside on my frame.
It is no wonder that while our world is still white, I'm enjoying these gorgeous spring colors in my stitching. I'm stitching Tulip Praise in some of HDF's lovely silk floss.
One of our favorite visitors to our feeding station is the Thrush. This one has stayed all winter and shows up each day when the Flickers arrive, they must hang out together and we always imagine them lounging around up under the trees saying something like, 'isn't it time to drop into Bungard's Bistro for some suet?'


  1. Oh Schnee, sieht noch nicht nach Frühling aus.
    Eine schöne Stickerei.
    Liebe Grüße Grit

  2. Your HDF silk looks yummy! Love the colours. Beautiful stitching!


  3. Thanks, Veronica, nothing has that lovely sheen like silk :)
