The 17 year cicadas are due to emerge anytime now in our area, East of Lake Michigan. We had a young tree in 1990 that has a big scar on the trunk from cicada damage back then. The tree did fine and hasn't been moved so we expect the next generation to crawl out of the ground around it soon. I wonder if I knit something in the heirloom category, who might have it 17 years from now. I have an idea...
In other garden news, I have been lucky enough to have as my Garden theme yarn swap partner: Emily from Alabama . Her blog : Yarnmiracle.com. We met through Lynn from KnitTogetherinMyMothersWomb, who runs great swaps. The women I have met through her are all just lovely. Stop by Emily's blog. You'll love her photography and her KNITTING.
My garden color scheme is very limited: purples and apricots. Purple petunias, and apricot doubled impatients. I'm trying to simplify.
The other thing a garden needs is bees. Al gave me some sock yarn for Mother's Day. Thanks AL! I returned it. (She said it was okay to........she wasn't offended. This family has a history of returning gifts and I believe I have finally caught their bug. ) I had to have the last two skeins of Lorna's Laces Bee sock yarn at my LYS. BUZZ BUZZ they are going to be so cute.
What is your garden going to *bee* like this year?
