Things that grow
This is the little tree which we did not plant growing in our front yard. He has grown a good two feet this year. He was a little stick in the spring.
This is one of the three knockout roses we planted in the spring. It was about the size of the daisy next to it when we planted it. These are our greatest gardening success thus far. The usual survival rate for our plantings hovers around 50%.
And here is the cap sleeved vestie I began yesterday afternoon. It's now eight inches of a tube. Lovely, mindless knitting it has been.
My daughter herself has grown 3/4 of an inch since June, putting her just over 5 feet tall.
