I hope you are all doing well.
I am basically fine and have been keeping myself busy. I've been gainfully occupied with homely things like cooking, cleaning, gardening, a bit of knitting and reading. I'm sure most of you are all doing much the same. Some people are probably exercising of which I am only doing a bit of indoor exercise. Unless you count a little bit of outdoor gardening though most of the strenuous work is finished.
|Fern on May 19/20. I'm really pleased with how lush it looks after how it looked at the beginning of May.|
|Same fern on May 1/20. After the winter I removed most leaves which were dead. It has really come back to life and more fronds are unfurling (the round knobs you see near the soil).|
|Cosmos. I wish I had some dirt in the ground to plant these in rather than in the container.|
|Catmint. This plant has several medicinal benefits and is easy to grow.|
|Hostas. I am going to transplant some of these are they are too crowded in the cedar box.|
|Red petunias. I need some new terracotta planters but it will have to wait for another time.|
|Red petunias. I love how petunias spread out and take up space with their luscious blossoms.|
|I recently started knitting some cloths again. I'm using up my yarn stash and replenishing the cloths I made in the Fall to give as gifts|
I haven't been using the time of quarantine for much reading except for Bible reading.
It's mainly because I enjoy reading paper books and our library is closed except for digital books.
Recently I took the plunge to borrow some digital books and read Sapiens and The Colour Purple.
|It started well but I ended up only giving it 3/5 stars.|
|I gave this classic 4/5 stars.|
