Sunday Morning

Ah, morning, my favorite time of day. All is fresh and full of promise and I must say, my veggie plants are looking smashing this year (so far), despite heavy rain and wind in the past few days. Sadly, there will not be any sunflowers, some critter dug up the seeds and ate them. And my guess is, the poppies will not come up either since they were in the same bed.

Better late than never

I planted a 'Ratatouille Garden' this weekend. All the ingredients (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, zucchini) plus a few herbs. I hope this year will be more successful than the last time we planted something and that no critters will be digging in the two beds.

Two Shawls

I knitted two small shawls this month, I really like the colors in the yarn, there is just something about blue and brown together. I am happy with how they turned out. The yarn is Stylecraft Special Effects DK in Foxtrott.

A Year of Blankets - #3

This one is called "Sunshine Mandala", I used Stylecraft Special DK in various shades of green and purple with stone as the main color. I find it fascinating how different it looks in the sunshine or in the shadow.
