Spring at Crickhollow...

The "crafty" consortium that my wife Julie and I operate is called Crickhollow Studios. We live way out in the woods in North Central Georgia, a bit south of Atlanta. Having been locked inside for over a week of rain, we had our first sunny day in a while. James and I spent a few hours fishing while Julie attended a birthday party for my mother, Patrick immersed himself in his PSP for the afternoon.. Right now we are on our way to pick up some good steaks to grill for dinner. I took the camera with us when James and I went fishing. The drive on the kawasaki mule provided a few images of spring here today, so I felt like sharing...

dogwoods in bloom

sunlight, how strange it looks after all the rain..

swampy and magical..

deer were here before us..

pollen in the pond..

fire ants...

Only you see a fire ant mound and click a picture to show us the art in it.

You sure know how to make a girl miss something she thought she never would.
