Spring in Utah

All of our trees and spring flowers are in full bloom; hoping we don't get a frost but just some more rain.

All Fenced In

Two goats were curious about me taking their photo. Took this in the town just east of where I live.

Time for Some New Stones

I fell in love with this stone the moment I saw it last year at the Tucson Gem Show. It is called Clinochlore (Seraphinite) and is mined in Russian.

A deep sapphire agate with fresh water pearl and Swarovski crystals all wired in silver.

 This gorgeous Labradorite stone 31x59 mm speaks for itself. The colors are mesmerizing and just what the doctor ordered to brighten up a color winter.

They can be found on my Etsy shop:

Ye Old Edwards Fence

The tall fellow in the middle is my great grandfather Thomas Edwards who at 12 years old crossed the ocean from Wales in 1854 with his parents and siblings and then crossed the plains from Nebraska to Utah. He did not remain in Utah but chose to live in a small community called Almo, Idaho.  I am not sure but I think the two fellows with him who love clowning around are the Jones brothers from Almo.

His mother is buried in Ogden, Utah and his father who lived to celebrate his 100th birthday plus 4 months died in Liberty, Idaho where his daughter lived and he was buried there in 1893.
