Projects and Plants

I think I shall give you a project update first.

I have added three rounds of dc to the basic Babette Blanket.
Next, I'm planning on adding three rounds of 2-round solid Grannies.
I'll do the Grannies in the sequence red, orange, yellow, green, mauve, lavender.

Here is a close-up. The colors are so much more vibrant than they appear in the pictures. Probably should have gone with an "effects" pix for color instead of "sunny." Oh, well, you get the idea.

Another project on the hooks is this:

Can you guess what it is going to become? (No, not a laptop cover . . lolol)

Now, for the plants part of the post. We have Croci (or is it Crocus'? I can never remember.) blooming and daffodil's shooting up in the front yard.

Flower bed in front of the front porch.

Close up of the flowers pictured above.

Flower bed, or as I call it, "The Grave."
It is a small piece of yard between the driveway on the right
 and the sidewalk, on the left, that leads to the front steps.
It is so nice to see the bulbs coming up, but, this no spring is creating havoc for the local Maple Syrup "farmers." Without a freeze in the morning, the liquid won't run down the tree . . so they won't be able to harvest it, boil it down and make syrup. SO, don't be surprised if REAL Maple Syrup goes up in price.
