Of the Garden
A friend – who knows about gardens – was over for dinner yesterday. She and I toured the back yard and surveyed Sophie’s potholes and my attempts at planting from last year.
It was mostly good news!
The Ruth Ellen Dogwood is not dead – it is just slow to start – my backyard is cold. The clematis is most likely not dead – it is just slow to start – my backyard is cold. The honeysuckle looks fabulous – it likes the cold! As do the lilacs and blueberries!
Apparently I have a cold backyard and I am impatient. Everything will do its own thing in its own time!
Of My Knitting
The two “secret’ projects are just finished and are off to their destinations! More to follow! My father has commissioned me to knit toques for his “Deck Turtles”. This should be interesting. I am thinking a couple of fine fair knit isle toques.
April will be a good month to paint Crystalline; Maybe a good month to finish another painting project as well.
Remember the Knitting Table?
The deal was – my friends husband is a wood worker – he makes me a table and I will knit him a sweater – it is time to knit him his sweater. My friends husband will get his sweater – the back is already 1/3 done!
Spring Fever is only 13 or 14 inches long – the pattern is written and being test knit as we speak – so to say! Maybe it will get knit?!
All the yarn is home to knit the spring/summer class projects and the fall/winter projects!
All the ducks are lined up pretty in a row!
Of my Life
It is quiet, curling beckons – the Men’s World Cup – in Victoria!
Family is healthy and happy. Life is good.
Yesterday we walked around Louden Park and the song birds were singing and posing everwhere. The sun was shining and there were lots of beatiful flowering trees and shrubs.
