It was a really gorgeous day and lots of good stuff was blooming. We’d missed the trout lilies, but among the things we saw were bellflower, Virginia bluebells, purple trillium, ginger, and Celandine poppy (that last one is especially for HG). And a very brave chippie.
V is quite the character. She pointed out to me that there was a very nice little house in the park where I would enjoy sitting and knitting. Chris later explained to me that this translates to “you can keep yourself occupied knitting while I explore all the nature displays at the visitor center”. The acorn didn’t fall far from the oak with this one, I think, as her mother is rather clever, too.
Some homegrown wildflowers from yesterday. For comparison, our neighbor’s yard. I refuse to feel bad, as the societal preference for a monoculture yard is completely arbitrary. Why do we want something that requires more effort and actually poisons the environment - just because English lords of yore had green lawns? Theirs, I’m sure, were full of many species beyond bluegrass. In a few weeks, we’ll have goldfinches gorging on the dandelion seed heads, and I will be happy. I hope you will be, too, settled into your new digs.
P.S. No real knitting to report. I did finish the knitting on the Microgreens BSJ but will wait to photograph it until I have buttons. The ones in my stash were bought for what I thought would be a larger sweater. This is definitely a preemie sized offering, and needs preemie sized buttons. I’ve knit a bit more on the Manos colorwork hat, but not enough to bother to show.
