The white tulips began to open this afternoon.
The snow is melting.
Let us hope Winter has had his last dance.
I will wait to see if the lilac blooms.
The Red bud tree held tight to her blooms,
as the ice melted she once again showed her Spring fashion.
I am watching the hyacinths.
I am affected by Mother Nature.
Her Spring ice and snow are beautiful.
I am sad for the daffodils.

It was my first show.
This dame seemed to know she won first place!
I talked with different breeders.
I felt lots of fiber.
The fleece that was the softest came from the Paco-Vicunas.
A true golden fleece.
I talked with the breeders from Hickory Ridge Farms.
They have Paco-Vicuna fiber for sale.
They invited me to visit their farm and these rare animals.
There are Alpaca Farms all over North America.
Some are bed and breakfast.
Learning about the alpaca is fun.
The show was delightful!
It is snowing and the drifts of daffodils are covered in white.
I saw branches in the pines broken and on the ground.
Tomorrow I will bundle up and walk the gardens.
Tonight I will stay warm and think of Alpacas.

A few of the all white opened this morning.
I sat with the daffodils.
We planted our potatoes last evening.
They are mulched and waiting for the spring rains.
I am packed and ready to go.
The forecast is for rain in Portland, Oregon.
I do not mind.
I have my book for the plane.
We have our plans for the eight days we will be away.
We will visit a Kite Museum.
Kites are good.
I will be celebrating the first day of Spring with my daughter.
May you have a happy Spring equinox.
I am up, up and away.
