hump day nuggets: craftiness with eggs and such.

hump day nuggets: little bits of the season in photos and words about the last week Huh.

moving earth

Well I came home to tulips doing sun salutes. The snow has melted, even in the always-shady areas of my backyard. The rich compost is turned and the rain barrels are open, ready to receive water.
