My Wave Petunias have filled out a lot more in their pots. I love the bright, welcoming color that greets me when I pull up in our driveway. Every year I have an inward struggle about the pruning of these plants. I know that if I sacrificed a few blooms and snipped off the long leggy growth, I would have a nice compact mound over each pot. I can't bring myself to do that. I like the wild, wayward "wild-child" growth. I don't want to remove a single bloom before it's exhausted. Can't help it. So, it gives me pleasure the way it is. Working on my new Estonian lace shawl, made with a yak and silk cobweb weight blend. This will be a VERY lightweight shawl. It will be a "wedding-ring" shawl in the sense that it will easily be able to fit through a ring when complete. I like the fussiness. I am excited to see how it turns out.
I am a Christian stay-at-home mother of four who homeschools my two youngest children. We live in the country, 10 miles from town. I "retired" in 2006 from a great job in technology. I miss the gadgets, but am happy to be home with my kids. I am an OBSESSIVE reader! Books, magazines, blogs, cereal boxes, anything.
