I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

Come What May

I have some knitting to show you. I promise. But maybe I can distract you with some spring-y photos in the meantime.

Sensation lilac
Look, I'm a pretty, good-smelly lilac!

That was today. But a few weeks ago, the tulips and daffodils ruled the garden. 


So overall, you would have seen this …

Hill flower garden

But I saw this …

Hill flower garden 2.0
This image is dedicated to the Snagit pro user of the house, my husband.

Every spring, I see the gaps of color and pledge to fix it. Fall comes back around and I forget about those bulbs buried deep in the soil. So I have now logged my reminder here. And THAT reminds me of these bulbs drying out in the basement …

Pretty tulips from aforementioned husband in January. Ignore the cute baby. I dare ya.

I could probably plant those in a prime spot in the front yard right now. I'll get right on that — oh lookie over here, more garden photos!

  1. I do that too survey the garden and not look at what is there sometimes;)

    You are making me want lilacs now!

  2. The lilacs are our favorite. I can't wait until they are fully in bloom so we can snip a few to bring inside. :-)

  3. Oh, they smell soooo good. I have the lilac bush that was in our yard in 1961 when we moved to Green Bay from Indiana. Dad was going to junk it in the late 70s but I rescued it and it still makes flowers for me every spring. I think it's happier in my sandy soil than the clay at the old house.

    Pretty pictures, Tanya. What baby?

  4. Both Tyler and I grew up with lilacs, too. I just wish they bloomed longer. Ours all live just outside the window of the aforementioned baby. Lucky duck.
