Green walk

After the unusual heat the day before yesterday it was cool yesterday. There was a thunderstorm with a little rain early in the morning and then more rain in the am. I could go for a long walk with the doggies in the pm with them coming happily along. The dampness and clear air even enhanced the green-ness I think. I took a couple of pictures but they don't do the colours justice, as usual. You can click on the pics to enlarge them.

barley field with poppy sprinkled in - looks so great when the wind goes over it

then there's some different medows with differnet colours dominating

and - not so green but stunning- this morning's sky

Sock knitting

This is the sock I am actually knitting on for Sweetheart.
Yarn is Super SOXX Color, needles 2.25 mm. I love to knit them and he loves the colour. I am knitting toe up, stockinette stitch, heel with gusset and heel-flap, and a long 2/2 ribbing, sewn bind off.

Over here it is so hot today. Too hot for me and the dogs as well as too hot for the season. 33°C in the afternoon. That's temperatures for the hottest days of July or August but definitely not May!
