That being said, the weather outside has be G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S. My flower beds are full of life and color, which is a HUGE improvement from last year when I had some lonely daffodils and Texas Bluebonnets. Now they are joined by hyacinth, tulips, and then the green spikes of the perennials and a few hardy herbs from last summer. The Clematis vine and lupine made it (yay!) and the roses, tho they took a beating, are putting out new leaves. Other green shafts and spikes are peeping out from under the soil. Being the carefree gardener that I am, I of course have labeled nothing. So it will be a delightful surprise figuring out which ones are flowers and which ones are weeds. I already know a few Sunflower and self-seeded next to the hollyhocks, altho the latter has some kind of rust on the leaves which I need to research how to destroy.
Can you tell I LOVE gardening? I am so excited for Spring!!!
In the Knitting world, I wasn't able to do much for three of the four days under drugs, but I was able to knit up this gift for a friend's 1 year old whose party is this next weekend:
So there you have it. My life of the last few... well, hours. Anything before that up to the point of the surgery is a rather foggy memory of drool and cotton swabs, and I'm sure you have no interest in reading anything further on that topic.
In closing, I will brag on myself a little more by giving you a glimpse of my flowers which are making me so happy :-)
