Show & Tell

Steve and I walked on the beach Sunday afternoon with Andrew and his girlfriend, Mae.
It was a little chilly, but so nice to be out in the fresh air.
Steve wore his Seaman's Cap; it's a pattern he picked out and it's knit in the scratchy Galway Highland Heather he loves. I bought at least four skeins of it when an area knitshop closed down, and I still have two full skeins of it. Come to think of it, I must have bought more than that because I've made a pair of socks for him out of, plus I've used it in some plain hats.

This is a pot of tulips left over from Lindsay's wedding. I can't believe how well they are holding up.

I have another pot in the kitchen in my blue bowl. We're going to plant the bulbs in the hope they will come up again next year. I seem to remember that some tulips don't bloom more than once, but it's worth a shot.

Speaking of flowers in the yard, these are so pretty, even though they are pretty close to weeds, I think.

They've popped up all over the yard. Weed or not, I like them, don't you?

Now I need to get back to work. I have a project due Saturday for my gifted class and I'm starting to stress about it!


  1. Spring is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing the lowers and I'm so happy the beach is warming up a bit for you.
    Have a great day,

  2. So jealous of the flowers...yes, I am.

  3. Flowers are never weeds -- unless they are dandylions!
