These sunflower sprouts are destined for my back yard in another month. In the past starting seeds indoors has never worked out for one reason or another. So far, these determined little sprouts are a testament to perseverance. I love the tall giant sunflowers, but these are small bush type plants. Hopefully there will be beautiful sunflower pictures to post later this year.
Even though not much is green outside, I do have some green plants inside. These "spiders" are from a plant emac brought home from grade one or two for Mother's Day. That original plant lived behind my kitchen sink ever since. I even slipped another little spider plant from some one else (I recall that story), Finally, after almost 10 years, there are so many little spiders to share. the Mother's Day plant is variegated and the other one has plain dark green leaves. I think they look good together.
As I walked by the front window, I saw the little chickadee and actually had my camera in hand! I think you can see him in the centre, eating a sunflower seed.
The Knit Along for the River Shannon is going well! The pictures are starting to come in, and they all so very pretty. See for yourself here: River Shannon Knit Along at Ravelry
The Test Knit for the Sixty Bushels is progressing nicely too. You can see the process here: Sixty Bushel test knit at Ravelry I am so grateful that there are test knitters!
That's all for now. I did stay up last night to watch the Full Moon Eclipse. It was spectacular.... I saw Mars, and big shiny full moon slowly disappear into shadow. Then the cloud cover filled in and nothing more could be seen. I fell asleep before seeing anything else.. So tonight I have to check to see if the moon has returned.
That's all for now, again.
