Johnny, jump up!
Yesterday's flower, courtesy of my daughters, is one of many in the drift of johnny jump-ups in one of the front beds. They make me smile every single day as I shamelessly admire my garden, coming or going; all offspring of one little plant I was given for Mother's Day a few years ago. There's even an occasional odd one or two growing quite far from "home," too. It's truly amazing how unique each flower is -- from a distance they all look the same, but up close, there are incredible variations. Here you see my pitiful attempt at trying to capture the drift in a photograph.
I think I neglected to tell you all of my ebay score the other day -- seven balls of Noro Blossom, color #4. I ought to be receiving them soon and I'm anxious to see how the color works with the Cash Iroha for Williamsro. If that doesn't work, it's back to ebay... I shall post a swatch ASAP.
I declare it to be a Tivoli Day! In other words, the sock is getting a rest... I'm thinking about ripping it and starting over, perhaps even with a different pattern. I'm not so anxious to give them away, after all -- if it were any other yarn, I'd be fine, but this is New York yarn and I'm sentimental that way... I'd like to remember my NY buds when I wear my green striped socks (and wouldn't they want to be remembered that way?). Plus, I have more than one item of clothing that will match those socks, the newest of which is a bra. It's only been the last 5 years or so that I've even owned a bra, and I don't think there's been a single one that wasn't white or tan -- not even black -- but now I have one that's green. Go figure. What's next? Animal prints? Florals???
