recuperating

...recovering...replenishing...resting...so I don't RELAPSE!
 
We are starting to get some really nice warmer weather during the day.
Some of the first flowers are starting to appear...like this lungwort,

Trouble is, I cannot get out to enjoy it just yet.  I have been trying to take it easy until this cold/flu/nasty germ...leaves my system entirely.

I have turned the heal on the "embossed leaves socks" and was pleased to find out that it was not as hard as I had expected!  I do need to pay attention to what row of the pattern repeat, as well as what row of the decrease AND what stitch -within the row I am working on.  All of this has been easily remedied with stitch markers and row counters.  And to think there was a time I used to rely on paper and pencils!
 
Did you notice the size of the buds on the quince bush?  They are starting to "pink up".

Now I know for certain that I am living in the wrong climate.

I do hope you are feeling better! Nasty! I have missed your posts & am just catching up. The eagle must have been amazing! I like what you wrote about the juncos...hadn't really noticed them in that way. Love seeing what plants you have emerging. Take care!
