'March is an old man,
old and cold..
grey beard and weary....
soon he'll be going,
the grass will turn green..
soon the warm sun will melt him,
and he will be gone..'
Needlefelting inspired by Elsa Beskow's
'Around the Year'
We have soaked and lightly covered hard wheatberries with a thin layer of soil..
and up sprouted the grass in less than 3 days!
We plan on using it for W's Easter basket, too.
The earth is damp and squishy after a full day of rain yesterday..
the crocus is more lovely and purple than ever...
