I went to clean all the newspapers out of my garden (the paper boys are pretty careless around here and often throw the paper on my porch, where a good breeze tosses it into my wild roses - making it really difficult to clean, so I've left it all winter) and discovered several signs of spring.
....My lawn covered in grape hyacinths. This won't last long because I guarantee my landlord will have it mowed by the end of the week... but it is pretty. You can also see my insanely over grown roses -- clipping them back is next weekend's project, but they will look like that again by July. They are gorgeous in full bloom though.
As I as cleaning out the papers, I also came across this cute fellow:Of course he didn't stick around long:
Although hidden by the roses, my garden was also full of tulips... so I picked them all!Of course, these will probably be toast by the time I wake up tomorrow, as somebody (aka Mr. Rocky) looks upon all my flowers as his own personal salad.
And my final sign of spring is a gift to you!
A free pattern - Baby Janes because it's Baby Season!I designed these because all the other patterns out there are in garter stitch, and I wanted something with a smoother look.
