My irises are starting to bloom. It's funny how they come in waves. First my purples, then my peaches and lilacs. I'm still waiting for my greens/purples.
These are a smaller iris, less that a foot high.
Now these are from the bed next to the road. These came from the neighbors, in a bag, so it's always a surprise of what color blooms in what area. I can never remember from year to year. LOL
I have no idea what color this may be...maybe purple, maybe purple and green? I should know in a few days.
I've been working on hubby's scarf. I'm on the second skein, only two more to go. He says at the rate that I am stitching, he won't get to wear it until next year. Okay, I'm knitting as fast as I can. Can I help that I have have the attention span of a hamster? LOL First I work on his scarf, then on a blanket, then, oh look there, I should work on my quilt! But first I have to clean off my craft table so I can find the sewing machine, then, what!? Is that my cross stitch project? I should get a few stitches in on that. Oh, look how my machine cover is starting to rip...I should make a new one.
He's lucky I've finished one skein. LOL LOL
I had lunch with a friend and took a walk through a yarn shop in her town. This skein, and two of it's friends, jumped into my hands and begged, yes begged, to come home with me. Is that not a beautiful blue? Almost electric! It is an acrylic/wool blend. I promise not to start something with it until I finish hubby's scarf. Really. LOL
Things are the same with Dad. Still no talking, no better, no worse. I've got a finishing retreat in a few weeks. Hubby and Baby Sister will be taking care of Dad for the weekend. I feel bad about going, but know that it is way past time. The last time I left was with Baby Sister to the hospital and before that? Last year in May. It is time for a break...
My final pictures are of part of my daily commute. The rains have helped both grass and flowers. The first picture shows the wonderful green hills. The yellow on the left side is wild mustard. The second picture shows a blanket of California poppies. It's been a long, long time since they have been so thick.
I hope that each of you have a wonderful week. Be kind to one another.
