Dormers, mud, and Mt Washington

dormersThe builders have made some noticeable progress on the second floor of our new barn. We have about half the upstairs walls, including the three dormers on the front. The workmen have many of the boards cut and ready to go and the walls are going up quickly. I checked on the work this morning, climbing up the ladder to see the second floor and noticed our fabulous view. It is amazing what we can see on a clear day.Mud puddle

Mud season is again upon us. The melting snow is producing rivulets in lawns, fields and along the edges of roads. In some cases the erosion is pretty severe but the road grader has been diligent in keeping the pot holes and deep ruts under control. On my walk today I found this mud puddle with interesting sediment patterns. Now how can I show layers like that in a quilt?

Oh, and the view from those dormers? Was I ever surprised to learn that we could see all the way to Mount Washington in NH on a very clear day. Click on the photos to enlarge them so you can read the fine print and actually see what the arrow is pointing at.
