wake robins spotted: tooley pond road
i drove into the western adirondacks this morning, tootled down tooley pond road to cranberry lake, stopped for ice cream in star lake, went down the back way to oswegatchie, close by fine, down the cracker box road, to south russell, and then home. and today we saw two ravens, watching over us foolish humans, and many, many spring flowers. on tooley pond road we watched the growing things back up a week or two. but i cursed myself (twice) for forgetting my camera. here's what i saw: wake robin trilliums, the flower my mill is named for. all. over. the. woods. i have no picture for you.
my first ecoprint. india suggested it. bloodroot on silk. bundled for two weeks. more or less. i couldn't wait any longer.
