Pretty flowers


I love pink flowers. Last year we didn't plant any annuals in our yard, and I wanted this year to be different. So this past weekend I planted flowers. Lots, and lots of flowers. And mostly pink ones. I am lucky to have a sweet husband who doesn't mind if I want to plant all pink flowers. :) I don't have pictures of all of them because they're not too floriferous* (is too a word! I looked it up...) yet, but I am hoping they will be as the nice weather progresses. I planted impatiens, and petunias, and some pretty little things called verbena and alyssum. So pretty. And all pink and purple (of course...).

Here are some of the petunias I put in a pot:




I love this color. It's so vibrant in the sun.


And...our tulips came up! This was our first year planting bulbs, and so far so good.




(* that word was on the description of one of the flowers we got. I thought it was a great word!)



And in knitting news...

What's wrong with this picture?



I am still not quite done with my second Inside Out sock. So close...and yet so far. Last night I made the error of knitting my sock with the ball of yarn still in my knitting bag at my feet...well, I suddenly realized that Mr. Moose was at my feet...and, well, let's just say he made really quick work of this. I swear he wasn't there very long at all. I had to rinse the yarn out (it was all wet and slimy and eeeeew) and leave it to dry. Tonight I will see about restarting this. I am so close to being done, and I just want to move on!

Ohhhhhhh...bad Mr. Moose. Jake (a mini dachshund we babysit) was sitting quietly on the couch one night. I should have KNOWN he was being too quiet. He ate his harness off. I didn't notice till I went to walk him and his harness pulled right off of him. Bad Jakie. ;-)

The tulips are BEAUTIFUL!!! I love pink tulips!

I've already been knitting along and not known about the cat's chewing until the slimy bit hits my hand. Eww!
At least Moose has good taste!
