Just a quick post to let all y-all know that I'm going to be away from my computer for a while. I will try to post from "abroad" but I'm pretty sure you'll have to wait for pics till I get home. The family will be holding down the fort at home while I'm away--so not much will change here for the furballs!
Yes, I'm bringing some knitting, so hopefully there will be a few shots of Birch in exotic locales. You'll just have to wait and see!
And yes, I'm going to miss my knitting buds, and my kids, and the grandbabies, and the furkids too. But some things are just worth it!

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?
