Raindrops …


This Solomon’s Seal is a volunteer that came up by the corner of the house. I loved the way the raindrops beaded up on the leaves, and it has very attractive flowers, which will give way to dark blue berries later in the year.

Lots of knitting, almost entirely for an uncomfortably close deadline. It’s mostly cabling, so the one piece that’s plain stockinette stitch is actually a welcome break πŸ˜‰

I know I’m more likely to complain about bad service than talk about a good experience, but we just had a very pleasant surprise with our nearly 10-year-old computer chairs from Steelcase. The gas cylinders that control the seat height had both failed, and we expected to have to pay to replace them. Turns out that they’re still under warranty, so all we had to do was drop them off to the distributor in St. Louis,Β  go eat lunch, then come back and pick them up – wow!

  1. Yeah for good customer service. Don’t forget to show us the berries.

  2. We have a patch of false solomon’s seal in the back of our yard. It has multiplied through the years. We get the flower, but no berries. And, yes hurray! to good customer service. Seems rare these days.
