It's FINALLY been raining - running off the eaves, filling the ditches and puddling the driveway - rain. We usually get the bulk of our rain in December, January and February, but those months were sunny and warm. Now that the flower bulbs and fruit trees are in bloom it starts raining, and HARD!

Ceanothus Silk moth

Found this guy on our front step when I got home from town today. I don’t think he’d been emerged for very long, his wings were a little wrinkle-y and he sat and shuddered a lot. The thing was the size of a small bird! He hung around long enough for me to grab the camera, swap lenses and take this picture. Then he flopped away into the wet grass, out in the pouring rain. I wonder if he's going to be able to dry out like he needs to in this weather.

We are in New Hampshire and enjoyed our dusting of snow this morning. What state are you in? Or maybe Canada? Love your fabric finds!
