Spring has gone right into Summer

I will finish Thermal (sewing up and weaving in ends) today. It's lovely.

I've also chosen my next pattern to cast on - Yoke Detail Pullover. I hope I can find the yarn quickly.

I've also finished my Peacock Shawl. It's beautiful, but I don't have enough blocking mats to block it out properly.

I also made another Market bag. These are really quick to work up and nice to use. I plan a few more before the month is over. Adara is great yarn for this project. I'm really sad they discontinued it. I'm very glad that someone bought a large quantity and was willing to let me have it.

Today I went to the Omaha Botanical gardens with friends. It was really nice, it will be even better next week when more things are blooming. And May/June when all the trees have leafed out it will be amazing. I will be going back. I could have taken my camera and had a few pictures for the blog, but I NEVER remember to do that. Perhaps next time!

They had a deadly plants display inside, which was really interesting. And Cacti. I wonder how they move all those large plants/planters when they change the theme. It must be an enormous undertaking. Oh - and they have a corpse flower, I wouldn't mind seeing it in bloom, just to see it.

Oh! The plant display sounds like something I'd totally dig! :D
