Happy Easter everyone. As I write this I'm sitting on a lawn chair in the back yard after having first cooked Easter dinner, then cleaned up the kitchen afterward. I had my English Breakfast tea, and my Iced Tea, so that plan is still on schedule. As I sit here and enjoy the lovely weather and gentle breeze, I can see all kinds of plants that have gotten a good start on the year.
The first flowers I have every year are the flowers on my Vinca. They are one of the signs of spring that I look for each year.
The second one that shows up is usually the Muscari.
Pulmonaria showed up next. This one is Daughter's favorite because the flowers turn from pink to purple.
And today's newest addition is the Jack Frost Brunnera.
These all tie in very nicely with the latet shipment I received from Blue Moon containing a skein of yarn called Wild Irishgirlie, and two patterns.
I chose the one called Slip Jig, and I've finished the first sock. The pattern was easy to memorize so it went fairly quickly.
Here's a close-up of the cuff pattern...
How's that for some nice Easterish color?
