Within 24 hours, the buds went from a tiny bit of color peeking through, to the blossoms coming forth! They are going to be big and beautiful, but there is a problem...I bought one red plant and one WHITE! I'm not complaining as they are both stunning. One plant has two stalks, with the larger of the two growing quite well. The second is small, a tiny little whip of a thing, which could still grow into a beautiful flower, I guess. Regardless, I'm amazed every time I walk into the room.
This is the new camera, a Canon PowerShot. Admittedly, the color swayed me, as did the (mistaken) belief it would be easy to use. As it turns out, nothing is the same as the old camera and the manual (which had to be downloaded) is 212 pages. I'm not even sure where to begin, but I will "cultivate curiosity(#5)" and figure it out.
As to yesterday's post...it's no secret, I'm a big fan of The Woolen Rabbit yarns and last year I joined Kim's first ever yarn club. The December yarn is Mara and the color a deep, rich red, Poinsettia. I'm rather enamored of its depth and beauty, as well as the lusciousness of the yarn blend (silk/alpaca/merino). You saw the beginning inches of the Mara Toque (no link), a darling hat I'll love wearing (and it will be warm!).
TGIF! Have a fun weekend!
