It is finally getting warmer here in the Mid Atlantic region! It hasn't snowed since ... well, three days ago, but still, it's warming up!
Unfortunately, my seedlings didn't come up (it's been two weeks and mold is appearing) so it looks like I'll be enriching a local nursery, rather than planting my own seeds. I'm irritated, but not too much. It's a very nice nursery with a great selection of everything.
It's my willpower I worry about. As bad as I am in a yarn store, I am much, much worse in a nursery.
Black elephant ears, hydrangea, a blueberry bush, and a fig twig that is supposed to grow into a container-sized tree.
I also bought a compost bin, which is so far filled with 95% coffee grounds.
It has two separate sides. When one side is full, I'll let it stew while I fill the other side.
The herb patch ... Buddy is sitting on what used to be chamomile.
Pretty Kitty making sure I got all the food out of the tin.
Let's see, what else ... oh yeah! Knitting!
I gifted the baby blanket last week. Now I've resumed work on a pair of socks:
And turning a silk hankie into mittens.
I meant this to be a more in-depth post, but I had to stop and run a 2-hour scan on my computer. I had a trojan horse. I don't know what kind, but my computer would sort of stop every 5 seconds. Thankfully, the virus-protect took care of it and all is well now. I hope it continues to be well. This laptop is 4 years old, and I just don't want to bother with a new one, you know? I blog and check email and play scrabble on facebook. That's it.
And I leave you with a reminder: Fair-skinned people need sunblock.
That isn't really a sunburn. It isn't at all painful. It appears to be a series of really angry-looking red dots, like a rash or allergic reaction. I don't get it anywhere else except my legs. Anyone know what it is? It happens every year the first few times my legs are exposed to the sun.
Ta-ta! Happy Spring for those of you in the Western Hemisphere!
