The ground is way to saturated and muddy to do much in terms of clean up or readying the garden but at least the snow is gone. For now -- because we could get snow for another 10 days or so. Smart Mainers don't believe it's over until we are closer to the end of April.

At the feeders, the gold finches are appearing in their bright summer plumage --

That's not a great photo because it was taken through the window but you get the idea.

And my Aeolian shawlette is nearly finished -- just 3 rows to go. I likely won't get to blocking it until Friday but I will have pictures as soon as I bind off.
