Not too much to report this time. I didn't do anything fibery at all last night. In fact, I went to bed at 8:00, shortly after I put Emma to bed. I did a bunch of weeding in the garden yesterday morning, and took Emma and a friend to the beach in the afternoon. It was really fun- there was a sandy tidepool that had warmed up enough for the girls to "swim" and they splashed around and waded and had a grand old time. But I guess I was tired after all that activity, after a week of doing nothing.
The roses are in full bloom in the backyard, and this one is lovely:
It's a really pale, pale pink, and has the sweetest fragrance. It's a little bush rose, only as high as my knee, and that bud is about an inch and a half long. They open up into ruffly, wide flowers.
I was also able to snap a picture of this Lorquin's Admiral (Limenitis lorquini), a very striking butterfly.
I'm amazed that I was able to get such a good picture of it- it was zipping around quite fast!
