Flowers & FO
It seems like two weeks between blogging is about the best I can do these days. I keep waiting for life to feel like it’s slowing down, but it won’t happen on it’s own. I’ve decided that I would find ways to slow it down myself. A couple of weekends ago it was Forsythia Day at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. We always go, as members, to pick up our free Forsythia Day, and to get our first wiff of spring. It was a perfect day at the garden & the sky was a perfect blue.
Our next forced slow down came in the form of Passover. Since I work for a Jewish company we are closed for all work restricted holiday’s. The Studio closed early on Wednesday night and David and I had a cozy Seder for two. The next day we headed to Boston to spend the second night with David’s family and then we headed up to the Berkshires.
there are all sorts of odd little galleries. This is an installation of hundreds of toys. The artist is Jarvis Rockwell, the son of Norman Rockwell.
It’s the Short and Chic Cardi. It was originally knit out of Wool Ease Thick and Quick, but I wanted a springy cardi, so I’m double stranding Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton. I should finish it over the weekend.
Also over the weekend will be GARDENING! The lettuce gets planted & the Canna’s and Dahlias will go in the ground. What a difference one week makes. Here are the Dahlias today that just shot through the ground 8 days ago.
