There's a Forest in my Flower Bed

I've never seen so many cute little mushrooms in one place. It's almost like an animated cartoon or something. I know it's probably because of the soil I bought at Home Depot. Plenty of good humus and manure =) great for flowers and mushrooms.



how cute are they?


another hibiscus bloom


and the profile


This is the beginning of a Clematis.
A climbing vine thing with purple blooms.


....and finally KNITTING!
I'll actually be able to start calculations for
the decreases soon, but not too soon.
I want this hat to be PLENTY long.
Long enough to pull down over my ears when it's cold oh so cold.


Sorry for the flashy photo, it's past my bedtime and
I'm too tired to fanagle natural looking light, you'll forgive me this time, right?

For those of you worried about us Texans and the storms tonight, we're ok, it was a bit dicey there for a bit. (I don't like it when the trees are blown around in circles while the tornado sirens are going off) Just to be sure, I had the kids holed up in the bathroom with plenty of cushy stuff to hide under and sit on. Hopefully it's a good enough spot b/c our stair well is really out in the open and doesn't seem very safe. Anyway, we didn't have any damage, but plenty of others did. It was a rough evening for many. The storm is pretty big and still headed East, so hopefully it's done it's worst already and Oklahoma and Arkansas don't have it to look forward to.
