A few quick shots of some things blooming in our gardens/yard. We have 3 Rose of Sharon bushes/trees and they have just started to open:
This shot was taken from the patio. (My clothesline and one of our hummingbird feeders in front.) It was way too bright and sunny to get a good picture closer. Our yellow daylilies have been blooming for over a week now. Such a deep, vibrant yellow!
This morning as I was waiting for my coffee to finish perking I looked out the back door and who did I see? Mr. Deer! Or Mrs. as the case may be.
She is at the end of our boggy area (yellow daylilies are to the right) munching on various plants that grow there. She took off right after I took this picture...and soon Tyg came across the backyard to come in for breakfast.
Last night I stayed up way too late...but I finished my Winter Sea shawl!!! I still need to bind it off, but I managed to knit the last 8 rows (1,856 stitches - yes I do like math and numbers) without making a mistake. Hallelujah!!! I'll take some shots after I bind it off and weave in the few ends. Then I'll have to wait for blocking weather (too humid again now).
Hope your Tuesday is filled with some fun!
I can't wait to see your shawl!!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful blossoms, and the deer clearly thinks you serve a delicious breakfast. And your shawl! That's a lot of stitches for an evening without making a mistake, and I'm really looking forward to seeing it.ReplyDelete
Victory! Congrats on your finish!ReplyDelete
Beautiful blooms and congrats on ALL THOSE STITCHES!ReplyDelete
Bravo for finishing the shawl without any problems. I'm usually not as lucky with late-night knitting.ReplyDelete
I have done the late-night-knit-a-thon to finish a project more times than I can count!ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see it.
I understand from the deer that daylilies are DELICIOUS!!! LOLReplyDelete
Congrats on the shawl finish!
The yellow lilies are so cheerful! I hope the deer won't nibble the blossoms! Good job finishing the shawl!ReplyDelete
Congrats on your 1856 knit stitches! We haven’t had deer prancing in the neighborhood - yet! I’d not at all be surprised if one did, even here in DC, the city. We’re not too far from wild areas...ReplyDelete
Looks like you're all set up with a "salad bar" for the deer. . . (ugh). Your garden looks lovely! Can't wait to see your shawl. XOReplyDelete
Your Rose of Sharon is very impressive! I'd love to see a close-up of them. I got two or 3 of them but they're small and in pots and no flowers. But yours gives me hope. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished shawl. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete
