Easter in Vermont

Easter dawned bitterly cold here. Too cold for the sap to run. The snow still so very deep. We spent the day with friends exploring their world, looking for signs of spring. Here's what we found....

Trees tapped for sugaring

Lambs needing bottles.


Hens starting to lay again


Easter Eggs


We spent most of the day around the table, talking and laughing. Short trips outside (it was very cold), then back inside by the stove for felting eggs and more visiting.

New life will spring.

Those are some pretty pictures!

I sure miss having hens. What fun it is to gather eggs on Easter. :)

It's so amazing to me that it's that cold and snowy not very far away from us...and we had a sunny day with crocuses and birds singing! But spring is there, even if it's still buried under the snow.

Bitterly cold here, too, making for an odd-feeling Easter. I went and uncovered shoots in the garden just to see that they were there, then tucked them back in again so they wouldn't freeze. Really nice shots there.

I love the pictures with the lambs. That must have been so much fun to feed them like that. Even though it was cold, it sounds like a wonderful day.

Much snow here too - what a nice day, and great photos of the animals!

Wow, do you really have lambs and chickens?

Cold here in MN too. I have to sacrifice what the Oklahoman in me thinks Easter should look like and feel like!
