Spring!

Spring Dogwood "Cherokee Chief"

Finally! I really hate to say that, because I love winter. And Spring, but spring can be short here (especially when it’s late) and burst right into Summer. And we all know what that means. HEAT. It’s a four letter word in the Rabbit World.  Lucky for me, Spring was still around when I returned from Ontario, Canada.  Where Spring wasn’t.  There was some green grass here and there, but snow was still on the ground and it was plenty chilly.

From Ontario, we drove to Portland, Maine for the IAGARB Annual General Meeting.  What a blast!  We had such a great time.   There was a great speaker– a vet with the University of  Maine Cooperative Extension who spoke on Bio Security.

Also, the meeting featured a felted beret class with Leslie Samson, lunches, dinners (of course, lots of great food!), registration testing and the meeting itself.  Leslie also did a presentation on the History of the Rabbit which was fascinating!

Once home, I hit the ground running.  As it warms up and the spring flowers fade, it’s time to jump in to all the barn chores after a long wet winter.  For a bit of excitement upon my return, I did a photo shoot with Klaudia for a magazine!  Stayed tuned for the particulars on that.

    OK, I must admit. I love it when you blog! You are really a good photographer, winter, spring, summer and fall. 🙂 The spring dogwood is very beautiful, especially.

    Thank you Kathy! I just had a little ‘dry’ spell for awhile, with the traveling and all. Maybe things will settle down some so I can focus more on this blog! And I really appreciate the nice comment about my photos. I have to give most of the credit to my new camera. Your photos and stories are in part what inspired me to upgrade from the handy point and shoot to a dslr!
