Knitting, Chickens and Green…

I have really been enjoying knitting on my Color Affection shawl, it’s almost finished and so exceptionally soft! I wasn’t sure about knitting with brushed kid mohair but I’m very happy I did. The feel is comforting and cozy, exactly what I want in a shawl. The size is also wonderful, I knitted the larger shawl because I wanted it to really wrap around me for when I go on walks and then I can just unwrap it as I need to. I am busy with the solid edge at the moment and have about half an inch to go and then it will be finished!

These photos above are of the view from my bedroom windows, I have three large bedroom windows looking out onto our back garden. The first photo is of a sparrow nest, this nest is about 2.5 metres away from my window, I am so excited Mr and Mrs Sparrow decided that this was the right spot to raise a family. We will be able to witness their journey, how precious!

The green photos (I LOVE green) have been taken from the two other windows… I love all the green variegation on the leaves of the ivy and lawn with just a tiny sliver of brown sand…

Our chickens…

Each morning our sweet girls make their way to this spot at the front door and call raucously until we appear and give them a few snacks. They are very inquisitive, forever trying to climb through open windows and see what the humans are up to:)

Our Days, Our Journey…

My mom brought these beautiful Wild Ginger blooms for me today, they are so beautiful and really tell me that Spring is well on it’s way. It’s hard to believe that we were having snow here 2 weeks ago. Today the temperature is 27 degrees C! I am so thrilled with the warmer weather!

Kye was busy drawing with his Stockmar crayons while I was cleaning in the kitchen this morning. I love these crayons, their vibrant colours and because they are made from beeswax.

Richard took this photo of me over the weekend, it was quite cold so we had a fire going and I, of course never miss an opportunity to knit near a fire…

The violets are flowering all over our garden, they are so sweet…

Today I received the most amazing gift for our garden!! A truck load of horse manure!! This is like gold for our compost bins and flowerbeds. I am so greatful, tomorrow we will move most of it into the compost heap in the veggie garden. I am going to plant a few pumpkin and watermelon seeds directly into the heap and see what happens.

These nectarine blossoms are so beautiful, I can’t wait for our fruit to start growing!

There are quite a few changes happening for my mom, she has been so brave and strong since my dad had his stroke. He is in intensive care at the moment but will soon be returning home and will need 24 hour care from carers there. He is doing so much better, moving his left side and speaking clearly, he cannot wait to go home and we can’t wait for him to be home with my mom, they are both missing one another so much! I am very greatful for all the kindness that so many of you have shown with your kind words, thoughts and prayers, we all appreciate you so much, thank you.
