When The Going Gets Tough...

...the wimp slacks off! Haven't touched the CPH since last Wed. Actually, haven't even picked up a knitting needle since then!

I did take the camera outside, though, to get a picture of the first Jude blossom--this is my David Austin Jude the Obscure rose. Love the color--pale ivory with a hint of peach.

Today there are several more blossoms, but they all look quite a bit like this one.

Some Project Spectrum colors:



and the first baby apricots on the tree. I am pretty much convinced that they will ripen and fall off while I'm gone. Ah well, can't have everything, right?

So pretty! Ummm, do you want an apricot-picking party in your absence :)

Yeah...I thrust all the knitting projects back in the basket today, myself. Everything seems to be frustrating me!!!

But those lovely blooms sure do make a Sheep feel ever so much more light-hearted! Sooooo pretty!

Uh, you? So NOT a wimp. Hope you're gathering your strength for the industrial sized plane ride and super amounts of fun you'll shortly be having!

P.S. I haven't touched my CPH in days, either.

Pretty flowers! I'll join Jillian in an apricot-picking party while you're gone. ;) Have a great time on your trip! I can't wait to hear about it and see pictures when you return.
