The peonies are in bloom and I managed to capture a few before they all fell to the ground. They have a lovely, intense scent.
Astible are almost ready to bloom. Mine are a dark pink when they come out. It seems as though they want to take over the garden and maybe even the yard.
They have volunteered themselves all down the sidewalk. I dug up two from this spot to give to my sister-in-law. I like these plants because they have a nice, lacy kind of look to them. Even though they have wandered a bit, they stand up straight, even in the rain.
I am cranking on my creative side today. A couple of birthdays are coming up. I could go out and spend a couple bucks each for some cards, but I prefer to spend about six hours making my own. I exaggerate. These didn’t take nearly six hours to make. And cards cost more than a couple of bucks these days.
I have been knitting when my hand will let me. This is going to be a pillow cover. This is a fun pattern. I am not even getting sick of it.
