The Heart of Summer
froggy friend has been living. This is first class accommodations, people. I hung this birdhouse a bit low - low enough for raccoons to reach, so no birds have nested here. Instead, a little tree frog has been renting the pad. Not bad for a green guy, huh? Can you see him peeking out of the hole?
I'm too embarrassed to show you my tomatoes. I planted about 10 plants but now they have merged into one giant Little Shop of Horrors plant. I think one of my kids went missing this afternoon when they got too close to the Amish Pastes. Poor darling.
I have a nifty little knitting project that is full of FIRSTS for me.
delicious yarn shop on Etsy. And she's a local Minnesota gal, so that makes it extra special. "Spice" is the colorway. It's my first time trying basket weave. Technically, this is a basket weave rib from Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks.
And I'll leave you with what I've been having nightmares about lately. It has to do with the Ely, MN 4th of July parade. And if you don't like clowns, then let this be a warning to you. Do not scroll down further. You will have nightmares.
