The Peony is a lovely flower. Our potted one put out about 6 blooms this year, it did need staked up, but it's worth the effort. A big black and yellow striped bumblebee was "posing" in this flower but by the time I got my iPhone to the camera app, it flew away.
I'm 3 rows into the 2nd color run of 14 colors, the "beach". Two more sandy colors then hues of ocean, sunset and sky. If I had it to do over, I would add more sea, sunset and sky colors as the "beach" colors are 5. If you're interested in this pattern, do check out the designer's website - Lucy at Attic24 blog.
A close-up of the shells. I love them.
The crochet and online Scrabble and Words With Friends (care to start a game with me?) are how I pass my time while keeping Dayle company and getting his soft foods so he is fed. I just made baby food oatmeal with a bit of brown sugar and butter and some baby food pears. We give him fortified drinks and jello and such. His voice is improving and I took him out for a ride yesterday and we picked up a few things such as chicken food.
I hope you have a good weekend. We're celebrating Memorial Day, it is observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.
SO.. I'm off to swim again. What an effort! :-)
