Grey skies whose raindrops
Gently caress the new leaves
Teasing them to wake
My daily goal is to seek out something beautiful in the tiny world around me and some days I actually succeed. Today was one of those days! The return of tiny green leaves on the bushes in my yard reminds me that despite the uncertainty of life right now, some things are constant and don’t require any human assistance. I am thankful for these small leaves!
I am also thankful for these smiling faces from yesterday! Thank you to Mary for hosting us again!
However, I did learn that slippery needles make for easy dropped stitches! The sock I was working on is up next for a “do over”! (FYI, Vera!! CoopKnits is hosting a FREE Mystery-Sock-Along! Clue ONE is up here!)
Happy Monday (yes, it is Monday even if it doesn’t feel like it!) Have a great day and stay home, wash your hands, flatten the curve!
I think because I am not going out as much (once a day now for a walk, if the weather cooperates), the changes in the plants around the house seem more dramatic. We have some daffodils almost ready to open and our hydrangeas are really greening up. It’s so reassuring to see that life goes on in nature, even in the midst of a pandemic!
Those green buds are my favorite thing to find in the spring. And it was lovely to see the faces behind the blogs!
I’m also trying to find something good every day, and I thank you for sharing your lovely green leaves and haiku! We were on a long hike yesterday so I’m sorry I missed the Zoom meet-up, but hope to see you again next Sunday (with no dropped stitches)!
I can’t WAIT to see some green shoots. (All I’ve got this morning is . . . snow.) 🙂
So nice to see you yesterday, Kat!
I’m also trying to find something good every day, so I thank you for sharing your lovely green leaves and haiku. We were on a long hike yesterday so I was sorry to miss the Zoom meet-up, but hope to join you again next Sunday.
I’m sorry I missed you all yesterday…believe it or not, I was asleep! I had not slept well the night before, had done some major cleaning in the morning and then just zonked out. I needed it, but was sorry to miss you all. Thanks for the link to the mystery sock Kat! My printer won’t work with my new laptop, but I’ve saved the clue to print later (I’m going to have to make a run into the office at some point…but only 5-6 out of 100+ people are showing up at one time, so I’m not too concerned). The lilac bush outside my office window at home is budded and that brings me hope! Stay well Kat!!
Only green here are the tulip shoots I planted last fall, they make me happy-for sure!
Loved the meet up yesterday!
Buds! There’s a sure sign of hope. And yes to everything you said about yesterday’s zoom meet up – except for those dropped stitches.
The signs of spring and new life is all around. There were 2 deer in the yard across the street this morning. I never knew how much fun a virtual knitting group could be. The one thing I am really missing right now is my fencing class- I could practice by myself, but it’s just not the same.
oh I’m so glad you snagged a photo of us! We actually have some leaves on trees here 🙂 and LOTS of rain.
Thank you for the haiku and the spring photos. Thsi time of year I wish all he images online of spring had smellovision.
