Yesterday was a beautiful spring day. There was snow on the mountains that I can see from upstairs....
..down below, I even put the sun umbrella up so I could sit out on the deck to have my coffee. Note all the plants. And a poodle who just has to be in the act.
Inside, my seedlings are flourishing.
I've been playing with modular knitting. I like this kind - you only have to knit half the squares!
And I'm making myself a lacy scarf from some very fine merino wool.
When the mood strikes me, I'm also starting to knit the sleeves on this merino cardigan. They will have the long rib and cable parts on them too.
And for the piece de resistance - I spent some hours yesterday weeding the vegetable garden, then filling the no-dig gardens with their soil less mix, planting out the strawberries, lettuces, herbs and red onions, and then putting more barley straw down on the rest of the garden. In the foreground you can see the silverbeet on the left,with the large red onions and the fennel at the front. Further back on the right are some blackcurrant canes heeled in while they grow roots. I'm planning to grow things all over those bare fences, but that will take at least another season to achieve.
I love spring.
