Cecily MacDonald's 'Seaweed Cardigan' for mom. Classic Elite 'Allegoro' in linen. I like this cotton/linen blend for the warmer months. Gentle waving lines make this a soothing knit, which is what I needed after Saturday's mishap - (CAUTION! Following image is not for the weak of heart!!)
This is my reward for trying to separate Ms Bella from her
This love-dove is not even capable of violent behavior. Although, he does employ some pretty aggressive moves toward the squirrels.
We took the knitting outdoors this fine Easter morning and had a little walk-about. The most exciting discovery was the appearance of the snow peas!
Now it's time to plant the second row to be certain that we have enough for ourselves and Mr. Peter Rabbit who has been sighted sniffing about. I don't know when it happened exactly, but I gave up trying to keep the critters out of the vegetable garden. A good steward plants enough for everyone. (except the woodchuck, who is a true HOG)
I left these carrots in the herb garden thinking that they would be a tasty treat for some hungry burrowing creature, but apparently they were overlooked.
It seems as though this is going to be a banner year for the european ginger. I have a vision that involves the substitution of ginger for all ground cover here at Cloudwalk. It's so beautiful and juicy - those glossy leaves remain perky throughout the dog days of August. (I hope "Myrtle" didn't hear me say that!)
One more, or maybe two images of my cherished early risers -
Helleborus - only slightly upstaged by the diminutive GLORIOUS fritillaria - (I adore this plant)
I'll see you later - have a blessed Easter Day!
