Spring is in the air!

Well it looks as though Spring is here!  

On our walk yesterday we passed by our local 'duck' pond
There were quite a few baby ducks swimming around
It's really too bad that the city pumped most of the water out

As you can see there were some who 'got away'.
There were about 5 ducks walking along outside the fence.

I don't know the species of this tree but isn't it beautiful?

"The Wall That Travels"

 January pattern for the Ryan Eeijits "Touring Ireland through a Year of Socks" sock club,  "The Ring of Kerry"  ~  finished!

Casted on February's pattern ~ "The Beaches of Donegal"

For both patterns I'm using Periwinkle Sheep Yarn...love this yarn, it is so nice to work with, and so soft.

Today hubby and I went downtown to the Library.  Set up in the library's parking lot is "The Wall That Travels".  We saw it two years ago when it came to town.  It's just as moving to see this Wall as it is to see the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D. C.
