Yesterday morning I walked into my garden and discovered the tomato I thought was a Polish Linguisa, turned out to be a Yellow Pear Tomato. Despite the surprise, I am actually pleased. I love the flavor of the Yellow Pear Tomato. Plus, I have a Roma, which is quite similar to the Polish Linguisa. I had just a handful of ripe ‘maters which were a delightful burst of sunshine in my mouth! What a great way to start my morning.
As I was wandering about my small garden, I discovered the Grandpa Ott’s morning glory in all it’s glory. Funny thing, I didn’t seed this flower earlier in the spring. Rather, it made its way back from the year before. This is an ornamental type of morning glory. Typically, ornamental flowers haven’t returned. Maybe that’s because they’re an annual. Ha. I can just hear the gardening geeks correcting me! 😉
While I’m sharing a bit of my garden harvest, I also thought I’d share my progress on my latest knitting project. I’m working on a wonderful pattern, which is free by the way, called the Storm Cloud Shawlette, by Hanna Breetz. It’s a lovely pattern that is rather quick to knit up. For yarn, I’m using a gorgeous silk single by T R Designs which I picked up at Sock Summit. The sheen is simply marvelous and the colors are so brilliant it makes my mouth water just looking at it.
You might think I’m a bit silly, but I’ve been carrying this with me everywhere! When I’m a desk jockey (read: working in Corporate America), I put it next to my monitor and pet it every so often. Wonderfully, it calms and inspires me. La la… happiness is knitting in brilliant colors!
