But I promised you roses the other day. Turns out, Steve cut this one back before I had a chance to photograph it. (It was hard to take pictures during all my napping time.) But it's beginning to bloom again, so I took a few photos this evening. It's name is Joseph's Coat.
Gorgeous, isn't it?
In knitting news, I finished the kitchen rug I started over spring break. It doesn't look like much in the photos I took, but I did like how this one showed the color scheme. And my crocheted edging. I had forgotten how quickly crochet is done. As I've been thinking about those ripple blankets lately, I may give it a go. At the very least, I think I'll crochet a couple of wash cloths, just for fun.
Still coming along on my spring break sock. I really love these colors, especially when shown against the wood of our back deck.
Just for future comparisons, this is the part of our front yard that Steve has dug up for a massive rose bed. The Joseph's coat rose is at the top of the photo, and he has planted four (or six?) roses in the main bed. I'm not sure of the master plan yet, but I'm sure it'll be lovely.
