I left home last Wednesday to visit my lovely daughter. We have been staying up late talking and laughing, going out to lunch, and visiting lots of really neat little shops.
She wanted to brighten up the front entrance to her home. She lives in a Williamsburg-style townhouse with no yard, and only a tiny front porch. So we have some waxed begonia cuttings that we will put in a pot for her porch. Here they are on the right. These flowers are shade-lovers, and she has the perfect place to put them.
We’ve also been making jewelry, going to Starbucks, of course, and just catching up with each other. I am so blessed to have such a close wonderful relationship with my daughter.
I’m making a bracelet like this one today, with her help, of course. You can see it on her Etsy shop. Here’s the link: Designs By LolaBelle.
We’re Knitting, Too!
She wanted to learn to knit, so while I’m here, I’m getting started on teaching her to knit. I had forgotten how frustrating the early stages of learning to knit can be for a beginner. She wouldn’t let me make a photo of her efforts at learning to knit. I understand completely — I wouldn’t have wanted anyone to see my first efforts, either.
As always, I have enjoyed visiting my granddog, LolaBelle. I often call her Miss Belle. Here she is.
I’ll be home and back to gardening and garden writing in a few days. “See” you then.
