The smaller Milkweed is blooming.
I believe this is Asclepias ovalifolia or Oval leafed Milkweed...it is one of the first Milkweeds to bloom. I saw some Monarch Butterflies...and will go check for eggs soon...the Common Milkweed was in bud. Its thick leaves have lots of food for larvae. Milkweed is a host plant for the Monarch larvae. The eggs laid on the leaves begin as tiny tiny black balls.
I mowed most of our lawn before it rained just enough tiny drops to be called rain.
Scrumbles...that is what the small pieces are called in freeform crochet.. I am watching some videos...it is all very interesting.
I have finished with phase one and two of the milk can project. Jen turned up her nose and gagged when she encountered the project last weekend. Phase three is almost done and then phase four can begin...then maybe even phase five...then six...it will take me all summer. I am still not certain I can do it all...but I am giving it a whirl!
I did not wood carve yesterday...I am behind on my goal of two ornaments a day. Thinking I will woodburn the names and date on these ornaments...I can do that outside...before I paint them...I have to do a sample.
I tell you what...if I didn't have lots of projects in the works during this isolation...I am certain I would go nuts or worse yet drive someone else nuts!
