As in many parts of the country, we have had plenty of rain. I'm not complaining because every year it seems it's either feast or famine in the rain department and since I don't depend on the weather for my livelihood, I'll take the lush green over dry brown any day. Thankfully I have no low spots in my yard, so although it's too wet to do much yard work, I don't have standing water. Mushrooms are everywhere. Here's a sampling in the neighborhood.
This must be an edible version since they all have a bite or two taken out of it. Isn't it amazing that animals can recognize what is safe and what is not?
I just had to share pictures of my neighbor's hydrangea. I've never seen so many flowers. He said last fall he had some rotting tomatoes that he put under the plants and the acid caused the wonderful blue shades. Every year I plan to add something acidic to the soil and never do.
Can you believe I am once again caught up on my rug binding? Nothing short of a miracle. I have been hooking for 8 years and this is the first time I've ever whipped a rug with yarn. It is a great chunky yarn from Ali Strebel. I must say it was quite easy and I do like the look.
If you need (or just want) a book on finishing techniques, Kris Miller of Spruce Ridge Studios has a good one.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy Saturday to you.
Pug hugs :)
