Hummingbirds, Flowers and Butterflies
When I was visiting my dad last Friday, I was entranced by the hummingbird feeder and how popular it is. I'd love to buy one for myself but gee, I really don't want bears to visit as well. When we first moved into this house, we had our grill stored outside in the fenced in area and the bear discovered it. Let's just say the damage he did to the fence and property was quite extensive. And he walked on our pool cover!! Yikes!
Summer days surround me and I've been enjoying the season. As much as I am a winter lover, the colors, sights and sounds of summer are beautiful. Lately I've been identifying trees that are native to the area-sorting out the different leaves in my mind. Black walnut and tulip trees, maples and sycamores, I walk and rattle off the names. I learned many of them as a child while walking with my dad in the woods.
My knitting slows down considerably this time of year. Longer days give way to more outside activities. However, I continue to think about knitting, I have projects in my mind that I would love to cast on. Another featherweight cardigan in a neutral shade that goes with my wardrobe. Hopping back onto my sock knitting ritual, replenishing my sock drawer with bright rainbow colors.
Have a lovely weekend!
