". . .The ground is almost bare, yet very little grows. This season is not good for much . . . unless you’re one of those overalls-clad, Northwoods diehards who eagerly awaits the running of the maple sap. If you are, you lovingly set aside this season, “from the Ides of March to the singing of the spring peepers,” for tending your trees."

THE WEEK OF
MARCH 28-APRIL 1
For the people of ancient Greece, vases were designed for function as well as beauty. These terra-cotta vessels were used in nearly all aspects of daily life--for storage, carrying, mixing, serving, drinking, and for holding perfume or cosmetics. See HERE. Creating amphoras was a hot, dirty, and laborious job, and although they served a real practical purpose, they were elaborately shaped and decorated--a skill often handed down from father to son.
