As soon as our weather heats up a little more those pretty flowers will be gone sad to say.
But until then we cut long branches of them to make our house smell so wonderful.
This weekend we got out a bit and went to the local Farmer's Market in town. Even though its too early in our summer for too many veggies, the flowers and early type vegetables such as lettuce were everywhere. We didn't buy much but its so nice to see the sunshine. We've had lots of rain and overcast skies and even several nights lately of frost. Some of our volunteer potatoes from last year got 'bit' by the frost.
Our big orange kitty 'Big Mike' is enjoying laying in one of my upstairs windows. I wonder what he's so intent on looking at outside.
Hmmm, maybe its our chickens we have in the garden. He's got the perfect view from my bedroom window. These chickens are called Mottled Java's. They start out as white chicks and as they mature they turn black.
These little girls are only about 2 1/2 months old now and still too young to lay eggs. But I can't wait to try them when they start laying.
I've started a new weaving project, a surprise for my niece Ivy and her husband Sergio's new baby. I'm making it out of 100% cotton yarn so it will be easy to wash. Babies can be a little messy if you know what I mean. The yarn is white and I'm hoping to do some dyeing on it before its finished. No details right now, its a secret. I will take pictures along the way and post them after I send it to them.
