Wow- It's April. Hope everyone had a nice weekend and a good Easter or Passover if you celebrate either. And now it's a new week. I saw on the news last night that some places got a dumping of snow and it's coming just south of us today. Old man winter really doesn't want to leave, does he?
Since it is the second of April it is time for Second on the Second over at Altered Book Lover's Blog. I am bringing you back to a post in April 2011.
I had made a little tag journal using scraps and leftovers, as you can see here.
You can see the original post here: Vacation Wednesday.
Stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog and join in by linking up a previous post.
And over at Art Journal Journey there's a new challenge for April. This month our hostess is the talented Alison and she's picked Recycle and Collage as the new theme.
I have a collage that I made back in December and have yet to post so I am linking it up as part of this challenge.
I used some scraps of paper tape, as well as some cut outs from some magazine pages. And finally I added this TH found relative since I thought she looked really good on my page.
And finally today my road, which is dirt, has dried out enough that I can get back to walking. I haven't been able to do that since last November. It was really exciting and thought I would show you a few photos from my Easter morning stroll with my husband and the dogs.
You may remember the sugar shack from last week's T Day Post. In just a week we've lost most of our snow and it looks like the maple syrup making has shut down for the season.
There's no sap in the big dispenser.
A sure sign of spring.
And down at the farm the little pond is still frozen but there still are some old fashion sap buckets out and tapped into some sugar maple trees. Wonder if they are getting any sap for maple syrup.
And the beaver pond is still there-only bigger.
And someone is getting their property logged. There was a skidder parked on the edge of the road.
And the snow was gone from the field and the field was full of flocks of robins. My phone's camera couldn't get the birds in the photo, but robins returning are a sure sign of spring.
And the headwaters of the Cocheco River were flowing fast.
And you would think the stream along the side of the road would be very cold, but that didn't stop Maddie from going for a little dip.
I bet her paws got cold.
Oh yes, maybe there are some signs of spring coming.
Hope everyone has a great start to the new week.
