There is one today, I swear, in the sky. The BLUE sky.
It feels like it has rained every day for weeks, but today is the first bright sunny day in ages - sadly it is also bloody cold. Frost is forecast for the next few nights so the plants I bought the other day can stay inside for a few more days.
I finally have daffs - well the little tete a tete, no sign of 'real' daffs at all this year.
The daffs will probably decide to flower in November or something daft. But these little cheeky chaps are lovely, especially in the pots with the forget me nots peeping through. I hate yellow and blue as a decor combination, but in a garden - lovely.
The Tulips of Wonder are just beginning to open too - have had alook at them this morning and no, not fully open yet. The pinks and greens together are just beautiful:
Great big fat tulip heads and layers of petals, can you tell how much I love these? Pink and green is one of my favourite colour combinations ever, perfect.
Knitting is happening - I have half a pattern written so if anyone feels the need for half a cardi / bolero then I am your woman. Hopefully I will get the first one finished this weekend, seaming and the edging to do at the moment, then finish the pattern ready for wonderful friends who have offered to test knit for me.
This is it so far:
I am also knitting a Speshul Thing for a Speshul Person. I don't think I am giving away too much if I post a photo:
Using up some old handspun merino / silk, which is lovely but one of my earlier attempts and pretty uneven. Watch this space ...
The teeny tiny Meccican Hat Plants I potted up the other week are growing nicely and seem to be rooted - hopefully some sunlight through the window will help them shoot up a bit.
On a lighter note - here's Grommit and his Jubilee sewing.
And look how hard he worked!
