For this quarter’s Project Spectrum (red, black and metallics):   Carrying on the mask tradition of Venice’s Carnevale.

June 1st, 2007 | Friday peonies

I have had these on my desk all week to admire. The fragrance is literally intoxicating. I know this is starting to look like a gardening blog–sorry! Monday we will really be back to yarn; come back and see. Enjoy the weekend!

May 25th, 2007 | Recommended reading

First the Friday eye candy, with pink and green for Project Spectrum: Clematis, that is miraculously revived every year through no fault of my own! Now the reading.
