Wonderful Summer!

White peony sweater is in full progress. The bottom roles a bit and my fingers hurt. But one more week - or maybe two. Beautiful, and I would have loved to pose in the finished item with my white peonies. Yes, I have knitted a lot to reach that, but giving in for a "in progress" picture. I guess the beautiful garden and all the work and a sneaking cold and the pollen is getting to me. Regardless of knitting ambitions, I just long for a few more days off to cherish this wonder that goes on in the garden. The wonderful Irises. Brings my mind to my time in Fresno, living with the University professor Mr Weiler and his family, who breed and competed with beared iris, in the race to produce a multi-stem flowering and black beared Iris. I still love Iris - and have a lot everywere, and the memory of my generous host family stays with me.
