Most of our lettuce has bolted; this variety has such pretty flowers!
I started this bump of alpaca/silk at the end of the Tour de Fleece. That's half of it on the spindle; I'm working on the second half now.
Pretty detritus on the steps beside the house. The shell is the color of the olive-egger hens' eggs, but much smaller.
My mom brought me this beautiful jacket; I wore it to work yesterday. It has a button hole on each side, but no fastener, so on my way home I stopped at my local yarn store to pick up a neat doo-hickey I had seen and admired there. Now that I have one, I foresee making knitwear with bilateral buttonholes and using this much more! (I really hate sewing buttons on knitwear.)
Clouds, clouds; I love clouds. These shots were all taken from our deck, looking NW; the top two yesterday evening and the bottom one this morning. Now they have all burned off and we're headed into a hot few days....
This spider is hanging out at the corner of our front door. I was going to brush it away (I hate walking into/through spiderwebs), when I noticed its web. Squee! I think it's a writing spider (thanks for the education, Sara), the first one I've noticed here!
Today's harvest (not counting a couple cherry tomatoes already consumed). That is ALL the potatoes the sprouted Yukon Golds produced, but it's enough for one recipe of good soup at a later date. Tonight we'll have green beans and whole wheat pasta with pesto; MMMmmm. This is the second double-batch of pesto I've made this summer; I fill and freeze the ice cube tray, storing the frozen cubes in a container so we can enjoy that green gold occasionally throughout the winter. This time I had fresh parsley as well as fresh basil from my garden, making this batch especially good. It's vegan, too!
That's it for now from . . .
