Payback time …

One price you pay for vacations is trying to catch up afterwards! I’m still working on a couple of uncomfortably close deadlines.

I think it’s a good thing I got out this morning and took these photos. It’s been extremely hot, then we got a doozy of a thunderstorm this evening. I’ve no idea if the flowers got beaten up by it or not*. We’ve had lots of wind, thunder and lightning, about 3″ of rain, and one very unhappy dog. It seemed to go on and on, in fact it’s still rumbling, but I just looked at the radar, and it’s gone past us now, which is a relief.

More later on the yarns (mostly sock) that followed me home, but there was some Blackberry Ridge Silky Merino in a yummy bluish-green, which is already on the needles. I had so much fun with Moth Wings that I’m doing another lacy stole, only this one’s a bit wider. πŸ˜‰

*The surprise lilies were pretty well flattened, and there’s not much left on the phlox either 😦
