I enjoy using quality top grain leather and hair-on cowhides to create bags that are meant to be used everyday and become more beautiful with age.
Congratulations to Julie for reaching her goal of exhibiting at the American Craft Show! I encourage you to attend to see not only Julie's work but other topnotch artisans from around the country. Tweet

One spring evening when hubby and I were visiting the park on Nicollet Island, we noticed some rabbits on the lawn leaping into the air like so many jack(rabbit)s in boxes. I don't think it was March (it didn't used to be so springlike in March around here), but it did bring to mind the expression "mad as a March hare."

The other one is the snowshoe hare, which lives in coniferous forests in the northern part of the state, throughout much of Canada and even in Alaska. Smaller than the jackrabbit, they are about 20 inches long and weigh only 3 pounds.

Both of our native hares turn white in winter and brown in summer.

Its natural habitat consists of areas with shrubs and some trees, like most urban and suburban yards. You already know that it likes to eat green plants in summer and the bark of your favorite shrubs and sapling trees in winter, but did you realize that includes dandelions, plantain, clover, and other lawn weeds if they can find them?

I figure they nibble their way across the lawn to get to the gardens, but by the time they reach the beds, they're too full to climb over the boards. Why bother when there are such easy pickings all around you? So there's a free gardening tip for you.
