Johnny, jump up!

Dsc05103Yesterday'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???

How about purple or red??? LOL! Your flowers are so pretty, and nice score on Noro! I'm turning green with envy!

woo-hoo green bra!! with matching socks no less .... no wonder that Rusty is always smiling!

Yup, gotta love the Tiv.

Your garden is so beautiful Vicki :)

Now that's unusual, matching your bra to your socks...as my mother would say though, "It's always best to be prepared, you never know who might see you!"
