Three random Thursday things

 1. Araignee blogged recently about her gardens exploding. Mine have too - I think it was the early warm weather. The wild roses out front are wilder than ever and the orange lilies in the back have really busted out in all their glory. In the five years I've been here, I've never gotten more than two or three blooms between the two clumps.

I took this pic on the weekend - this is just one of the clumps. When I came home from work today, I noticed the second clump has just as many. (And yes, I am aware that Tux's rear end is  rather expansive....}

2. Sometimes I think Rocky is the coolest kitteh in the world.
But then he does something evil like barf a hairball on my pillow. While I'm using it.

3. Shawl and baby knitting continues apace, but I don't have any socks on the go at the moment, so when Tangled Up in Sticks and String suggested a Dragonfly Sock KAL, I joined in.Those socks have been on my todo list since I first started making socks. I think I'm going to use my House Cat in Aurora
But I'm going to take one last look in the stash just to be sure... wanna join us? Details are on Tangled's blog.

My daylilies have started already too. I just hope that they carry on into August like usual.

Dee's already convinced me to join. I'm checking my stash too to see what might work. My worry is 60 sts - need something a bit heavier than my usual I think. But what?!

Thanks for the shout out! The yarn you chose is really pretty.

I didn't get a chance to cast on tonight. I had a small project I had to finish up first, but tomorrow I'll get right on it.

Have a great weekend.

Pretty lilies! Mine never bloom. I had high hopes that they might this year but they didn't.

Very pretty to # 1, eeewe to # 2, and lovely yarn for # 3.
I must say though, Denny likes to barf on the bed too, and if I can successfully push him down, he goes over to Happy's dog bed, and barfs on that. He's evil! That's also happening mostly around 2 or 3 in the morning.
