Summer joys

and they were worth waiting for. I planted the bulbs for these last year and all I got was leaves. I think they are wonderful. Love the shape and I am inspired to make some art utilizing the shape.

I had to replace the hanging baskets in the front of the house with these because the others kept wilting. Any plant that requires more than a once a day watering is too needy and not for me. Besides I will need to hire a sitter for my plants while I am away for a couple of weeks beginning the first of July and I can not ask my 12 year old neighbor to water twice a day even if I am playing her to mind the planters and the gardens

I haven't blogged in a while because I have been reclining in my chair coughing my head off since Friday when I gave up and went to the Doctor. Bronchitis, asthma, yuk!! Still coughing but am on the mends. At least by reclining I have the back and two sleeves done on Olivia's sweater. I started the front today. I plan to deliver it to her as I pass through Louisville either on my way to or on the way back from teaching in Natick, MA.

wishing you a full recovery very soon...and reclining in a comfy chair also goes well with sleeping in addition to knitting.
