Annual Spring Report

It is time for my annual May 1st update on spring.


This year spring is very late compared to my previous updates since 2009.


It is even later than it was last year.

Not a hint of green in the woods, the daffodils are not blooming, but a few of the earliest ones are sporting large, yellow buds.




Even though there are no green leaves yet, the pussy willows are in bloom.


So are the crocuses, and have been for a couple of weeks. However, they got quite beaten down by the hail a couple of days ago.

The winter has been long and cold, and the ground has been frozen until recently.


The snow keeps falling still.

  1. Hi hi. More greenery than in February, lol! I have just seen a northern lights type of Bargello quilt on Pinterest, attributed to Eldrid, yours? We had a great time on Hurtigruten, and saw the street art, thank you for the heads up, and we saw the northern lights! I have fabrics to make a northern lights Bargello, I have made normal Bargello, but would love to get the effect where it folds back on itself, can you explain that for me?

    I don’t think we will get yo Bergen thus year, but certainly next summe, maybe we can meet up xx

    • Hi again, Benta.
      Yes, I guess it is greener than when you travelled along the coast in February. Glad you had a good time of it. Northern lights is a bonus, – no guarantee on that 🙂
      The quilt you saw may be mine, or someone else who made one from my pattern. I have explained how to in the pattern which can be found here:
      You can also probably find out just by studying the photo.
      Meeting up some day would be nice. I also hope to travel more to quilt shows when I retire, and Birmingham is on my list. 🙂
