Apparently it's not Spring

At least, not yet.  We had more snow and now lots of wind and there's ice everywhere.  It will melt, of course, but as a student said today, "I think the March lion kinda ate the March lamb."  She may kinda have a point. I know eventually the hummingbirds will return, but for now, I'm still enjoying the woodpeckers.  Here is my downy friend again, enjoying some suet.

It's here!

I went back into my wood patch and there they were, poking up through the leaf litter and semi-frozen soil: little daffodil shoots.  It's here!  Spring is here!

book festival!

I'm thrilled, delighted, flattered and nervous!  I was invited to the Newport, RI Public Library on May 3 to be one of the authors at their "Festival of Five".   I will be one of five women authors from New England to be on a sort of panel/round table to be interviewed and to answer questions from the audience.  I have no idea right now who the other four will be, but I am excited to find out.  I have never participated in anything like this but it sounds like a lot of fun!  I think there will be some books for sale, which means I have an excuse to feed my book addiction.  Right now this is pretty much all I know.  Oh, right, the festival begins at 2 PM and it's open to the public, so stop by if you're in the neighborhood!
