The lilacs are in full bloom.
It has been cool and most days rainy. Not much rain in the rain guage, mostly just enough to make you wet and shivery cold.
Yesterday was party cloudy and we saw the sunshine for the first time in a week. I took the opportunity to get out my sprayer and kill some Poison Ivy. Yes…death to the ivy, it is small and an easy target.
One rainy day I painted a bunch of bark houses that I had carved over the winter.
The one out front is one of my favorites.
Fun little carvings!
We are working on the design for this years Christmas Ornament…it is still in R and D.
Sadly one of our woodcarving friends died last week. Norm was 88 years old, he was a good carver and a kind gentleman. Three days after he died his wife of 65 years died also. What a blow to their children.
Far Guy and I are the youngsters of the carving group…most are in their 70’s and 80’s…so I suppose we will lose many more woodcarving friends. The group is always telling funny stories and laughing…and that is a good way to remember your friends.
