And Friday is Flower Day! I have three small hydrangea plants out front. There was a total of one flower from all three last year, but all are producing this year. Every once in a while, when I think of it, I dump the coffee grounds 'round the base of the plants.
Yes, I was flat out on the lawn -- on the side of the house that has neighbors, no less -- to take the lily of the valley going-to-seed photo. The neighboring house is for sale, but I don't think it's because of the lunatic knitter/photographer next door -- although it could definitely be because of the neighbors on the other side. No love lost there; in fact, the police have been called and a summons has been served, but I just listen when I have to and nod/shake my head a lot and really try to stay out of it, thankyouverymuch.
My favorite wild bellflower -- I'll have to look that one up again. Most people would consider it a weed, but it's definitely a wildflower to me and I look forward to seeing it every single year. ; ) Heh, my espalier crabapple will definitely be getting a haircut this weekend!
I was dog tired last night and went to bed early. I didn't knit a single stitch, but would have if I'd have been able to locate my knitting! Y'all are right about summertime and knitting socks, and I just happen to have at least two pair underway -- but I couldn't find them! That's the problem with "organizing" the stash and WIPs. I spent whatever energy I could muster on searching, and I kept opening the same drawers, disbelieving that my sock bag wasn't there... It's GOT to be here! I just SAW it here! Finally, I opened the lid of a sewing stand that's never held anything but knitting (usually, all my Lamb's Pride, but it's recently outgrown the space) and there it was. I think I'll work at finishing the second Celtic Braid, but Bayerische is riding shotgun and may get a turn, too.
