Friyay

I swing in the hammock chair and watch birds.

Other than work, I’m not doing much. I knit a few rows on Deschain here and I’m knitting a heel flap on my Pride sock there. I did plant a small veg and herb garden, and a few flowers. I’ve had to clean up after deer and what is probably a raccoon digging up my beds and pots. But they left it alone last night. A morning of respite! And a fog rolled in.

One tomato and the pepper are still getting over the trauma of being dug up by critters. Twice! I brought the lemon balm, sage, mint, and blackberry from my old garden.

I’ve enjoyed catching up on your blogs. This weekend I will show you my yarn closet!

Summer Cold

I’ve really been dragging this week and I think I have a summer cold. Not much knitting going on here. But here are some pretty pics of flowers.

I received these orchids as a gift in April and they are still blooming. What’s my secret? Benign neglect. When it warmed up I thought they might enjoy the bright diffused light and humidity of the screened-in porch, and I was right. Also, I don’t pay too much attention to them as I hate heat and humidity so I stand inside in the air conditioning and admire them from afar. It suits us both perfectly.

This Christmas cactus is jealous and attempting to bloom in envy. C’mon. Just one flower. You can do it!

After work today I’m going to come home and watch Time Team until I fall asleep. After Bob and I watch the last episode of Dark, that is.
