Hello from May, the most wonderful month up here!
And thank you for all the lovely comments of the flowers, I am glad you like them, as I am not finished with them yet.
The lake is not quite free, there is plenty of water around the shores but the ice is still floating unbroken on the lake. The migrating birds are coming back in bunches and the air is full of chirping from the early hours. There is snow but is it vanishing by the hour. Everything happens right this moment. The day light hours keep growing and all of a sudden there seems to be haste all over. Quiet, hibernating months are gone and life is bursting everywhere. Grow, recover, bloom, gather, sing…and hurry, hurry!
It has been very warm during the last few days; dear Mother Nature has been pampering us. I love May, I just have to say it again and again. I wish the days were longer during May, one set of 24 hours flies by and I cannot let this month slip away, I have to savor each and every day. Yesterday was very lovely, I enjoyed every second of it, went in and out of the house the whole day, so easy without having to add layers of warm clothing, and this morning when I started the computer, I looked at the date and realized, already 2nd! Oh no, slow down, please, will you.
My summer day usually starts with the first cup of coffee enjoyed on the steps of the house facing the lake, and already it has been warm enough for me to sit there for a bit. Today I took few pictures for you from the shore line and as you can see, the water is quite high and it is creeping higher all the time at the moment.
My knitting life is still all about flowers. So far I have knitted all my leaves and flowers with wool, but I need to try cotton too. Somehow cotton seems to require different perspective and these cotton ones might end up being little different. Well, so far I have only two leaves finished with cotton and it is maybe too early to make decisions. Will need to make more and then maybe a couple of flowers to be sure whether the outcome is what I have in my mind.
Fingers crossed the ice on the lake is gone by the end of the week! While waiting it to happen...
Wool with you,
