So Friday I took some time to enjoy the hot weather.
Ajax enjoyed it, too, but I don't think the garter snake he was happily hunting in the brush pile enjoyed it! (He's a lucky dog to live in Michigan, which has only one rare species of poisonous snake.)
I used the good light to take a picture of my caught-up Sampler CM (Sampler M, continued). This is pattern 13.
Pattern 14, which came out back in December, was the last one on the group so far, but I didn't enjoy knitting it half as much. But I did knit it, so I'm finally caught up.
This morning I'm glad I took a picture of the shadblow (Amelanchier laevis) in bloom. The flowers are almost gone already.
That's why I really prefer a slow, cool spring to a hot, fast one: I get a chance to enjoy the flowers instead of having them open and burn up in a day.
Snow has disappeared from the forecast. For now.
(So have 80 degree F temperatures.)
