Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

This ‘n that …


I used to have several of these hibiscus, including 1 whose flower was about the color of the center of this one. Over the years, this is the only plant left, but I’m so glad to see it come up each spring.

Even closer.

And another of my Mom’s daylily hybrids – this one is called Prim, and it’s about the same size as the Stella d’Oro variety.

And I finished a pair of socks – the yarn* was a gift from a dear knitting friend and I’ll think of her whenever I wear these πŸ™‚

New socks.

  1. OMG! Those socks are beautiful! Love the colors. So very Joy;-P We lost our hibiscus years ago and had one just like your white one. So beautiful. They get so big and floppy like a big straw hat! And, your Mom’s daylily is so pretty. I do love the smaller ones, too!!!!

  2. Mmmm, lemon yellow daylily! Pretty socks! Happy summer, Joy!
