The giant Hosta can be observed moving up and out of the ground in a period of a few days. I love the leaves when they first emerge and have no ugly age spots. These hosta are so big I'm not even sure they are hosta. A family of rabbits could live under them.
You could drink a glass of wine from those unfurled middles.
My back garden is a Mix of Hosta and rose bushes.
Some summers I'm into growing vegetables and herbs, this summer I just want my roses to be magnificent.
It is a perfect mix if you ask me.
My friend Meg is crocheting this shawl for her daughter's wedding day. Meg is a knitting phenom. She wanted to crochet this one and I think it is going to be magnificent. The middle back section is where the beading happens.
Here's her start in a sea ice color way. It is a perfect pattern/yarn mix.
Below: learning from mistakes:
This would be my convertible mitten experiment.
I hate this yarn.
I bought it long ago, thinking it was like watermelon (and would not pool.)
Since my mitten/fingerless glove trial, this week,
I've decided not to make the other.
Maybe I'll make a pair in a different yarn.
The concept was easy enough.
I did muck up the thumb placement, so for the next one, I'd have to pay closer attention.
Who wants a watermelon mitten in the winter anyhow?
It was just the wrong mix.
Here are some of my favorite mixes:
Roasted corn and butter
Blue jeans and a white shirt
Champagne and champagne
Fritos and guacamole
Roses and baby's breath
Sunsets and water
