Some green things

No not yarn this time. I wanted to share the sunflowers Russ planted with a friend just days before he moved away. I thought it’d be nice to document here their growth so that both Russ and his friend can watch them.

Also, for my sister, a big thanks for sharing her daylilies with me. We planted them 2 years ago. The first year, we got what I thought was quite a bit of flowers. I was mistaken. Here they are this year:

Can you see the height there? Yeah. There’s several that are taller than me. Now, I know that doesn’t take much, but seriously. And the best thing is she wants to give me more. If only I could give away my chives as well.

OK, I give up: one more green, and it’s yarn. From Wool and Company in Geneva, IL, the first stop on our yarn crawl. I love that shop. The folks there are so nice and sweet. The girl who checked me out even inquired as to if I was planning on socks with this, as most folks need 2 of them. I assured her that I could easily get a pair out of the 215 yards included. Plus, oh the color!

More yarn to come, I promise…
