Although we live in a very populous area, we have a big back yard. This year we've seen a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers and a pair of nuthatches bring their children to the feeder. They've been here in the past but this is the first time to see babies.
There was a bumper crop of poppies. They must like all the rain. Also have robust sunflower growth. Fewer larkspur due to the landscaping done last fall. These 3 plants all reseed wherever and lead the ignorant to believe we put effort into the garden.
These are from batts bought last fall from Redstone Yarn. Merino, silk and a little sparkle. The red one I did on the Golding spindle. 155 yards, 2 ply, 1 oz. The purple was done on a Kundert, 140 yards 2 ply, 1.5 oz. There is another red batt and 2 turquoise to go. The Golding was amazing.

Pretty much today's haul. Had most of what I wanted by 10:00, had to make a trip to the car and thought about leaving. However, had arranged to meet people so... Started out cool and rainy, lovely. I was glad not to have succumbed to panic and worn long sleeves. The crowd didn't bulk up until about noon and everything was still jammed at 1:30 when I left. Saw several people from SOAR and some from the local group.
