Despite the looming due dates, I have not been knitting away at baby gifts, as I had intended to spend much of May. I've been sidetracked by this:
Being that time of year, I've been gardening. Weeding, weeding, weeding, but I also planted (meaning I asked my husband to dig the holes, and I put the plants in them) two new roses and some daisies in my front garden. None of my pink tulips reappeared this spring, which was a great disappointment. I'd never experienced that before, but after googling, I learned it is not uncommon. I'm still disappointed. The whole reason I plant bulbs is so they will be there forever. It is not worth the effort for only one year of blooms. This fall, grape hyacinths and daffodils.
Last week I painted a table. I did not take pictures. It is a round end table I bought last winter on Craigslist for $20. It was creamy yellow, and I painted it white.
I have also been spending probably too much time entering contests on Pinterest. Choosing twenty images when I know they will be judged is quite different from pinning things when I happen to see them, only so I can remember them later. As of today, I have not won anything, but hope springs eternal. If I win a Vespa, you will hear all about it.
