After reading Eat My Yard's entry on lilac sugar and, perusing all the lovely lilac bushes around the condo, I decided to give it a try. The house was filled with the scent of lilacs as I placed the petals between layers of sugar and I hope it tastes as lovely as it smelled.
Every 24 hours you give the bottle a little shake and, after two weeks, strain the sugar to discard the petals. The essence of lilac is there to sprinkle over strawberries, cookies are anything else you want.
Since the weather turned a little warmer this weekend, Smith spent time in his garden and I tagged along. He's the far figure in this picture. Another gardener has put up the very attractive scarecrow.
Rain is in the forecast and the temperatures could drop. Unlike Norma, we are not fearless, so the tomatoes and peppers will be planted next weekend.
Not sure if blog laryngitis will continue as there isn't much knitting content to share. However, I did root around the stash because Susan finally published Fog Lifter . (You must check out Laurie's shawl knit with Kim's yarn. It's lovely!)
The perfect stash yarn presented itself, but the only thing I remember about this gorgeous yarn is Susan dyed it long ago. Maybe it will help to lift my fog.
