Stormy Sunday Morning
Then - in the pouring rain (and thunder and lightening) comes a group of runners. I guess a race, but I don't think anyone was wearing numbers. Maybe they were just training. Talk about hardcore. (And foolish in my opinion for being out with so much lightening.)
I have been doing some knitting. My current Dulaan Knit - A baby sweater with lots of stripes. I wanted to use up some of my bits of yarn. I am very pleased with how beautiful this is turning out.
I'm also working on my Folk Sock. Just have to finish the foot on the second sock. But no updated photo.
Picture of the Day
Day 5 - Newly forming leaves. You can see the dead leaves that were killed by the late frost. This is a recurring theme for many of the tree and shrub species around our neighborhood. The early leaves are dead and new green leaves are just starting to form. Since some of the plants have had to put a lot of energy into producing two sets of new leaves, I wonder if that will reduce their reproductive output this year. Of course I would need long-term data to be able to compare reproduction this year with past years that had no late frost. But still interesting to think about.
