My Dear Readers,

Oh how it smells like spring! Damp and moist and green and lush. The crab apple tree is about to burst forth with blossoms. The bleed hearts are all a glory and the valerian flower buds are beginning to swell. The nettles are tall and ready for eating and drying, not flowering yet, but not long off to flower.

Yesterday I planted some anise hyssop and separated the coneflowers. I am hoping for more height in the front of the garden.

So many good things to share with you today!

On the BLOG we have the Give Away from Lynn Jericho. At seven o’clock East Coast time tonight, we’ll draw the winner’s name and announce it on the blog post where the Give Away was announced.

For an interview with Lynn Jericho that I did last year for Rhythm of the Home:

For Lynn’s website:

Christine Natale has great article for us on Fairy Tales and Waldorf Education, What Are Fairies? .

Suzanne Down brings us simple, sweet verse and wool puppets for summer play with the Simple Felt Butterfly and Turtle Story Verse Play.

So sign up for the Sunshine and Shadows Give Away if you have not yet done so, make yourself a cup of tea, have a good read, then rummage around your sewing box to see if you can’t sew up a sweet little felt turtle for the children in your life or “comb” out a little butterfly from “fairy wool.”
