Spring

Spring has come early this year. And for those of us in northern New England it was an easy winter with few storms or cold weather.
But spring is always welcome here however fleeting.
My snow crocuses and hellebores are in full bloom and the coltsfoot blooms along the road.
Coltsfoot can be a nasty weed spreading fiercely. The flowers and seed heads look like dandelions but it blooms much earlier when any color is welcome. Not a plant I would want in the garden but pleasant along our country road.
I have been making mosaics from last summers blooms, delicate ethereal images. They are available on Etsy as mosaics or individual photographs.
Too wet to work in the garden so I continue to knit and have some new cotton scarves for spring and summer.

Dear Mrs. Stalus,
I really adore your photographs! I was wondering if you had any recommendations for digital printing. I've been wanting to try making some prints of some pictures i've taken, but short of printing it out on my old HP i've no idea where to start.
Thank you so much!
Sincerely,
Natasha

Natasha, there are many great printers available now, many are quite inexpensive. I think any of the HP, Canon or Epson Photo printers would work very well. I use an Epson R2800 but the less expensive printers will do very well unless you need to print on large or thick paper.
