In one of the local gardens, not many daffs yet but I did find a camelia that wasn’t drowned by the rain. The rain ruins the blooms very quickly.
The skunk cabbage isn’t considered a garden plant here, but in England it is an exotic addition to the garden. Although it didn’t smell yesterday, little children were running around saying “yeuwie skunk cabbage”.
The first of the rhodos, delicate yellow. This garden is next to the grocery store and is a nice reward after picking up supplies.

One would think I was going to write about some fancy new thread. I’m not, nothing exciting like some fancy rayon, multi dyed cotton or some thing more exotic. I hate to say but it is about my teeth! I have a couple of annoying spots that the dental hygienist found again and rather than heavy duty dental tape or ribbon, she has suggested that I use yarn! Treking worked well last night, I am thinking that I should boil it first to make sure nothing is lurking in it.
I did finish my Treking socks last night. I am amazed at how well they match, it was accidental.

Home decor is a challenge and a thrill for me. Once I have made up my mind, I want to start now. The aging body needs recovery time, from any burst of decorating effort. Even shopping and finding the right things needs a good cuppa, some comfort food and a rest to recuperate afterwards.
The sewing room is coming right along. The first day, I didn’t last long maybe half an hour of painting effort. The second day, wow a full hour, painting to Shakira cd, kept me moving, not just my roller arm but the knees and back as well with more enthusiastic stretching. When my hubby, the dear man, took a couple of days off, he started painting, I felt like I’d had a reprieve. I hadn’t realized that I was feeling so stressed. Certainly didn’t know I felt like I had a death or life sentence. Such joy, it is starting to look good.
