Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

A little of this, a little of that …


Saturday before last, some of our fiber group came to visit and eat and just spend some fun time together. Glen, who taught me to spin a lot of years ago, has a new lady friend – he brought her along, and we told him he’d brought the entertainment.

Toby and Lady.

Toby especially enjoyed the company. She doesn’t “do” steps yet so when he went down the 3 steps off the deck, she stood at the top and scolded him for leaving her behind πŸ˜‰

I’ve been playing in the garden a lot, and it’s coming along nicely. All the tomatoes and peppers are planted, the new asparagus (finally!) all came up, and the beans are looking good.

The bluebirds have been very busy lately – both parents have been making pretty constant food runs to the house at the end of the garden.

Going out for more …

I realized I forgot to show you the 2nd rose I ordered. Prairie Sunrise came with several buds on in and they almost all opened – in addition to the lovely color, it has a wonderful fragrance!

  1. What a lovely garden! Bluebirds don’t frequent my house in town. You’re lucky!

  2. I have never been able to attract the blue jays to nest in my garden. Great job!

  3. You have been a busy grrl. That rose is gorgeous. Is it a tea rose? So dainty looking. And, the pic of Lady and Toby is so darling. Typical. She’s bossing him around;-P

  4. oh my, the Prairie Sunrise rose. be still my beating heart!
