Springs in NC, when the weather doesn't go straight from 40s to 80s, are wonderful. This weekend was a case in point, mid to upper 60s with cool nights. When we came downstairs this morning, our little cardinal friend was hanging out in the garden.
He might have been checking out the breakfast options:
When Elizabeth came home this afternoon, Finn was just waking from his nap, so we decided to head to the backyard, for acrobatics...
Mommy worked on knitting with this new funky orange wool,
which inspired Elizabeth to learn crochet chaining with her rainbow wool.
Your cardinal friend is beautiful! Luck you! Acrobatics in the back yard after T's nap is also the order of our day... so cool to see how similar others are to us. Makes me feel like I'm doing OK! Silly thing to say, really, but it does!ReplyDelete
Looks like a nice, crafty day! NC must be beautiful right now.ReplyDelete
I love the picture of you and Elizabeth crocheting/knitting together. Grace has been learning to make crochet chains lately as well.ReplyDelete
What a perfectly lovely afternoon! Wow, that is a loooong earthworm! Great pic of the cardinal, they are so restless this time of year I'm amazed you were able to get one of him on the ground!ReplyDelete
Love that bird! And the orange wool, too. :)ReplyDelete
What a perfect weekend for spring! Knitting together looks like much fun!ReplyDelete
I adore crocheting. I finally learned to knit, but it's not what I enjoy. I could crochet all day long, though... lol!ReplyDelete
The cardinal is so pretty.
I love cardinals. :) Occasionally I see them flying by. My daughter love to hang upside down. She's been knitting more lately and did the double loop over the weekend. I love that orange yarn. So happy.ReplyDelete
The cardinals are back at our house, too. Grady stands at the gate and yells "buwds, buwds, come eat Gwa-dee's bwdfeeder!"-- I haven't told him that it's squirrels and not birds who are chewing our pinecone feeders to bits!ReplyDelete
I love seeing you both knitting! What a wonderful blog. I'm going to start following it. :)ReplyDelete
oh, little cardinal! i miss seeing them all the time when we lived in st.louis. sadly, no cardinals on the west coast...sigh...glad spring is back for you all, too!ReplyDelete
