Renewed Energy

I finally feel as if I'm recovering from the stress of the past few weeks. For nearly a week after my trip to Vermont I'd put in a long day at work, come right home, eat dinner and crash. The energy has slowly come back though, and I've become productive again.

I finished my niece's socks.


And started some new ones for me.

This is a mill end from Blue Moon Fiber Arts that I picked up (okay, practically snatched out of my best-friend-evar Tika's hands) at Stitches West in February. Hot pink normally isn't my color (I leave that to Jasmin) but I thought this colorway was pretty cool.

Our back yard has been quite productive as well! We've been eating peas:

And carrots:

The onions are well under way:

Here's a blurry but pretty iris:

(I'm wondering if I could possibly interpret that into some hand-dyed roving.)

And the roses are going crazy:






Ah, Spring!

Iz all so purdy!!!! Good job on the socks and the garden is delish!

I'm still waiting for my energy to return...haven't quite been the same since that bought of stomach flu...but it's s-l-o-w-l-y returning.

I'm so glad you're getting your energy back.

Peas!

I miss those pea filled springs. I really need to stop being such a garden slacker. /sigh

Your roses are gorgeous! And as long as my best-friend-evar is happy, I'm happy. :P

More flowers, please! I haven't seen any for months!

Just blog-hopping (over from AlisonH's) as I tend to do when I have a few spare moments. Your flowers are beautiful! It must feel like June there. Or maybe in June it feels like your April here. Whatever.
