Killer sweater

When the little tiny rabbit sweater you're knitting has so many ends to weave in, paired with this particular color combination, that it looks more like a Portuguese man of war...

Tucker was just beat...

Tulip and daffodils

The tulips have been a real dud so far this year. I planted some new parrot tulips last fall, but not very many. And it seems like most of the old bulbs have fizzled out. At least it's been a decent year for the daffodils, with a nice long staggered appearance of different varieties...

Blueberry blossoms

Currant blossoms

Apple blossoms

Cherry blossoms

I was honestly worried there weren't going to be any redbud blooms this year - most of the buds I've checked turned to mush after the last freezing temps blast we had.
This is the tree in the backyard - will have to check the two in the front yard.

Dainty little snowdrops

Asparagus season has begun

These were so tasty! 

Future fruit!

Temps are gonna get low tomorrow night. I saw a forecast for 36F, and Mary said she heard there's a chance of frost.  Let's hope that doesn't happen!

Tree peony

The tree peony is going to bloom this year!

Peas please

I feel like peas I normally get these planted earlier, but I'm glad I waited. Our temps have fluctuated so much this spring that they would have shot up during the early 70F days, then died weeks later when we had highs near freezing and lows in the 20s and even a night or two in the teens...

So I'm getting a late start, but hopefully they'll have a better chance.

When you need to make four of the same thing, it's usually more efficient to do them all at once... Right?

Maybe knot.

I love Archer

Even Archer gives a nod to knitting. We've been watching old Adventure Time cartoons and have seen knitting on there once as well.


Looks like we got at least a couple inches over night! Temps are supposed to drop down to 15 tonight - I might go out and dump some bagged leaves on the onions and strawberries this afternoon - try to insulate them, although the snow might be sufficient?
