Our transplanted Rose Of Sharon is in bloom.
She's right on time.
We don't get many blooming trees in late summer in Chicago; Rose of Sharon bushes don't start until the end of July.
They are a welcome sight for humans and bees alike.
The heather is blooming too. So delicate…..so wispy. The bees are all over the tiny blossoms.
Some of our best blog posts are about reading.
I just finished ON FIRE by Larry Brown.
Kathy C, a knit buddy, gave it to me.
I love the short chapters.
I love the way Larry Brown talks to his reader.
This is a great read.
Not for the faint of heart.
I am knitting a baby sweater but it isn't this one.
The Zimmerman sweater is darling but my knit nurse pal Diane says she has modified the pattern for the better.
I'm just knitting a top down baby cardigan.
I'll show it to you soon.
