late spring

I've managed to finish this shawl: These colors really remind of the sea.. turquoise, lavender, moss greens.. I loved making this one. Two yarns, alternating, one a rayon ribbon, the other a thick and thin loose spun wool, hand dyed..
The garden has exploded in color, texture and weeds! Must. get. some. pictures.
Sweet pea..

pink roses, my all time fav..

an Asian lily.. love the color combos here..

I feel overwhelmed at the moment, school is coming to a close, the house, the new work in progress.. need to relax and take things one at a time. I'm a horrible multi-tasker. I end up doing things in halves.. one step at a time..

Oh those colours are wonderful together.
Sweet peas are my all time favourite flower but I can't grow them. I can smell them now. When I was little we used to have a church procession in June when we all dressed in white and carried flowers while we walked round the church and sang hymns. We always carried bunches of sweet peas in June and the smell of a huge pile of posies in the room where we went to pick them up stays with me.
