Spring Inspiration

It’s finally happening. The temperatures are rising, the sun feels warm, and on our walk this weekend we saw crocuses and snowdrops. I bought a pink hyacinth for the kitchen windowsill and it smells incredible!
No knitting updates for today, but I can tell you that April will be an Easter-themed month, and I am even planning my first give-away!


  1. Beautiful photos Monica - Yay Spring. Why am I always too tired to plant bulbs in the fall?! DARN!

  2. Hi Monica! Lovely tiny flowers and great photos!
