Neighbors, Flowers, Socks & Food

Hello from the hills, where spring rains and blooms have been abundant.

The azaleas are bloomed out now, but they were profuse in April.  Can you believe it's May already?

We have new neighbors.  A nice quiet family moved into the cedar house under one of our Sugar Maples.

The mom is really quite the homemaker.

And the dad is an excellent provider.  They're expecting five little ones any day now.

I finished the socks.  The yarn is really nice, superwash merino.

What's for dinner.  Homemade Chicken Taquitos with sour cream and salsa.  They're delicious and much better for a body than the ones from the store.  Have you noticed the ingredient list on those boxes is about 2 inches long?

Hold That Tiger Iris

I'm not certain, but this may be the African Princess Iris. 

Hope you're enjoying Spring so far.
