I started a hat for my nephew's daughter and ended up using the wrong size pattern, so this little hat will go to my son's work friend's new baby boy, Diego. I've already started the second hat that will be the right size, hopefully.
I've been keeping an eye on the daffodil shoots and other growing things in the farmyard and stepped out to see if any of the daffs had opened up.. not yet.. but almost! Maybe tomorrow?
The Irises are growing too.. oh boy.. can't wait to see them in bloom. We planted a few new special ones, I do hope they have flowers this first year.
The Snowdrops are at maximum bloom right now.. I don't know how but these little bulbs have spread allllll over the place here! I'm very happy about it.
Such brave little flowers to bloom when it's still Winter and chilly. Although today it's up to 60 deg. F already!
Here is a big patch of them up under the apple tree.
These tulips are coming up.. last year after they got to this point we had a big old freeze and they didn't prosper. I hope that doesn't happen this year.
In that same big pot on the deck are two Hyacinths that I'd bought to have in the house the last two years and then planted outside when the flowers died.
Kristi tried a new recipe last night and 5 of us raved about it.. it was quite literally delicious! Our "food critic", 6 year old Caleb, didn't like the noodles or the broccoli that she put in it. LINK TO RECIPE You can add any veggie to this, it was GREAT with broccoli added.
I'm not heading to the pool today as I have a board meeting for the Friends of Multnomah Falls this afternoon and have to send out the FOMF newsletter that is ready to publish. It's at the printer but I also send out to a great many people via a PDF attached to an email. If you want to check out the newsletters, click HERE. I hope you're having a productive day!
