Spring leaves, once the stitches were flattened out

(It’s greener than this. Photo taken before blocking.)

I would have preferred to have used just the Arroyo dk weight but that would have taken more hours than I had left–so when I found two half-ball remnants of fir-green mink laceweight that matched it and that would smooth out the other’s color changes, I grabbed my size 7s and cast on.

A day later, it’s done. If it’s still damp in the morning it’ll get hairdryered.
Meantime, the still-squirrel-free Stella cherry and the Yellow Transparent apple trees.

A honeybee was happily climbing in and out of those apple flowers.

Tiny baby peaches had shown up overnight on the Indian Free and I thanked those bees for keeping close tabs on the place.

I am smiling this morning! So happy to see your trees doing what they are supposed to do with the help of the bees! We will be warmer here today and maybe get out in the yard a bit, maybe … we shall see how warm it actually gets! No snow overnight – very good thing! Sun is shining for now and we are both happy campers! ~chris

Beautiful! And all so much prettier than the on-and-off snow flurries outside my window today.
