March 3, 2013


It has been suddenly chilly here for the past few days. It was 63 degrees today, not counting the wind chill. In Florida. In March. You may not realise how odd that is, but usually we are well on our way back to summer by now. And here, the 60s are winter temperatures.

Also, I discovered what carrot flowers look like. They're quite lovely, actually, and very light green. I find them reminiscent of queen anne's lace.

This one refuses to cooperate. It has rotated itself 90 degrees to the right.

The sheet music, if anyone would like to know, is from the third movement of Beethoven's "Moonlight" Sonata.
I planted some lettuce; romaine seedlings and red lettuce seeds. And green beans. They seem to be happy, and the reds are starting to pop up. They are in pots now, and that is where I shall keep them, on the porch or atop trash bags to protect them from nematodes.

I bought some new yarn. I went looking for a nice grey, and ended up with a lovely rose pink as well. I'm not sure what to do with the pink yet, but the grey is going to become a hat. There is a nice pattern in that Needlework magazine that I'm going to use.

It's the lighting that makes it look blue around the edges.


  1. Those flowers are so pretty :)

    Can I ask what your yarn is please, I'm intrigued by the sheen on it :)

    1. Sorry, I did mean to put that in. They are both Caron Simply Soft, in Victorian Rose and Grey Heather.

  2. Thank you :) The colours are gorgeous!
