Blooms & Fountains

Lots of things are blooming at our house. Lilacs...

apple trees...


the lilies of the valley
are just beginning to bloom and the ferns are up...

and the bleeding hearts are overhanging the fountain which I got up and running today. Durwood wants to know if we can raise it up so he can see it better from inside. M-m-m-m-maybe. We can look at it tomorrow after I mow. Right now I'm clean so I can go to Friday Night Knitting and not offend.

I rehung the Menopausal Goddess sculpture
since it basically twirled around in the wind enough last winter to unscrew itself from the eaves. I'm hoping she behaves for the summer but I'm not holding my breath.

I frogged a sock and switched to a different pattern which I know I like. The variegated yarn overshadowed the stitch of the previous one.

I'm zooming along on Bandwagon Block #4,

and I resurrected the Lava Shawl. I caught sight of it on my Ravelry project page and had to dig it out and start working on it again. I think it'll go better now that I'm more experienced with reading patterns, etc.

It's a bloomin' Garden of Eden up there!!! I envy you those lilacs! But hey, after the weather you've had, you deserve all the lilacs you can get.
