Baby Sweater, April Morning and Rain

24 Apr

Yesterday I was given a beautifully knitted sweater for KnitZTanzania, knitted by T, the lovely Mother of a very good friend. I am working on one myself and encouraging others to knit so that we can send off another bundle to stop babies in Tanzania dying of hypothermia. The pattern is on my Creative Projects page, takes only 50g of yarn and is very easy.

2     April mornings are so beautiful with sunshine and showers, Spring blossoms and bird song. I love this poem!

Morning – Sara Teasdale 

I went out on an April morning
All alone, for my heart was high,
I was a child of the shining meadow,
I was a sister of the sky.

There in the windy flood of morning
Longing lifted its weight from me,
Lost as a sob in the midst of cheering,
Swept as a sea-bird out to sea.

3   And today we have showers! We haven’t had any rain for a long time and the garden really needs it. In this photo you can see two of the chimneys that I plant up, a  squat ridged creamy stone one and a tall elegant terracotta one. You can also see our beautiful Fledgling, the Malus just coming into flower with underneath Primroses  and some spikes of a lovely blue flower whose name escapes me. In the foreground are some of the beautiful white tulips I showed you recently.  On the left is the bird lighthouse where Blue Tits have been visiting but we don’t know if they have decided to nest there this year.

    I am not good with gardens or plant names, but I will offer one suggestion for the blue flower. Is it a Lupin?

    I am slowly recovering and easing my way back to catch up on blog reading.

      Thank you. I think it may be a kind of Lupin. It has stopped raining so I am hoping the label from last year is still there! 🙂
