Hello my fine friends! How are you doing today? I hope well! On Wednesday evening I went out with my camera to capture an image of the moon. It was the night before it being totally full, but to me it looked FULL! My Lumix camera has a 30 zoom and it works well for my beloved moon shots, but I have to crop it to get this close-ness -- if I ever could find a 40 zoom I think it would be perfect. My son has a 50 zoom and it actually zooms in so far that you just get a portion of the moon.. but it sure does show the craters on the edge well!
I'm glad I got the clearer image on Wednesday as last night when it was supposed to be totally full, there was a slight haze in the sky, which gave a nice halo to the moon, but the clarity was not as good. I admit it, I'm a "Moonie".
A bit ago I was admiring the flowers on the table and snapped this shot from my easy chair... :-)
I have 2 Shamrock plants in our family room window, one is red and I've only had it for 5 or 6 years -- but the green one hails back as much as 40 years as I got the tubers from my mother who had a green thumb -- which I think she gave to me! :-) I'm showing you my Shamrocks in honor of St. Patrick's Day on March 17th.
I adore the red leafed one as it's little delicate flowers are PINK!
The flowers on the green one are pure white with green centers with yellow stamens.
The Shamrock leaves *love* the light and so I'm always looking at the back of the leaves as they put their faces to the window.
I thought I'd show you where I'm at with my ripple cotton blanket. In a few moments I will be prevailing upon my dear husband Dayle to help me roll up the pink cotton into a ball so I can get started with the next row. It's name is "Ice Lily", then will come "Spearmint", then "Lichen" then the last row will be the gold color in the beginning. Then it will be done. Not long, really. I've enjoyed the process of this - the soft sumptuous cotton, the interesting colors, the neat ripple and most of all, Lucy at Attic24's unique "interlocking color" idea she came up with and shared with her gazillions of admirers. I truly believe that she has inspired quite literally a million people to take up crocheting. Bravo to Lucy in England!
We are heading off to run some errands this afternoon and to enjoy the sunshine and warmth. If you're buried in snow, please let me send you some of our early Spring.. we have enough to share! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
