I've laid aside my morning knitting these last couple of weeks to play in the flowers. Before I had kids, and before I spent my free time tangle up in various bits of yarn, I was quite the avid flower gardener. (Sadly, vegetable gardening has just never sparked much excitement.)
Here are just a few shots from around my house:
Don't you just love an unopened rosebud? It's full of such promise. This bush was started by my mother, from a bush her grandmother started, from her great grandmother's bush. Thanks, mom!A beauty of a star flower just getting it's start.
A batch of yellow daylilies that my dear departed mother-in-law gave me some years back. (I miss you, Hazel.)
Now on to my pet yarn project of the moment...I'm making the Fair Bianca from Tahki Yarn's Garden Variety booklet in black Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima.
