Just in time for Christmas.
Wendy has a blog now about being a writer, if you are interested in following her, http://wendylyoung.wordpress.com/. On Amazon and Barnes&Noble you can do a search on Wendy L. Young to see both books and her short story "One Final Night".
Wendy's Amazon page.
Wendy's Barnes & Noble page.
Check out her reviews, especially for the new book. Here is one from a fellow blogger some of you might know her as ItsJustMeWendy, not to be confused with my daughter Wendy.
And just in case you haven't picked up on it yet. The cover photograph was taken by me. Wendy's husband, Lukas, used photoshop on it (which I don't even have a clue how to use) and changed it to red. The original photograph was more orange (which you see when I post comments on your blog). But for this book it needed to be red.
Check out this blogger review with Wendy. Notice at the bottom, Wendy has now gone on the international best seller list.

but couldn't resist some of the rest of the museum.
My friend Alice loves goats,
so I just had to photograph the goats for Alice.
I don't blog much, but it seems like when I do blog it is about my knitting.
So I decided to start another blog (????). And today I have posted sheep photos from the Appalachain Museum taken this same day. The link to my new blog is here.

One time I used one of my photographs of these lilies for my niece Starr Lillie,
without thinking about her middle name.
Today is her daddy's birthday, but this post goes to Starr.
In the spring the greenery shoots up with the daffodils, even appears to be a daffodil, but it never blooms. The greenery fades, along with the daffodils. Then late July or early August upshoots the flower stem, with buds aplenty.

Audrey modeling her suntop and then her sundress. The sundress pattern is with a test knitter right now in hopes of selling this pattern.
Not sure I am going to publish this pattern, but it is also
with a test knitter right now.
The stitch is called drooping dayflower, which instantly caught my eye.
I took the drooping dayflower stitch and designed a glove around it.
This pattern has already been with the test knitter,
and the pattern has been added to Ravelry for purchase.
And I sold my first pattern within 24 hours.
If you are a Ravelry member click here for the link to the pattern.
Ravelry does require a login, if you are a knitter and don't
belong you should join, it is free.
so temporarily my repairs are on hold.

It was still early, so the shadows are more than I like in the photos.
But notice the difference in the flowers.
The top photo is a typical coneflower bloom.
The next one is more flat than Coneflowers usually appear.
The 3rd one is my favorite. I love how the petals are straight down.
As you can the roofers didn't kill all my plants close to the front of the house.

The yard is beginning to recover a little from the hail damage of 4/27/11. I have one bloom on two different hydrangeas. You can see just a little hail damage on the greenry.

The Flowering Almonds have just started to open.
They will be gorgeous in a few more days.
My hyacinth bulbs were transplanted from Rockwood.
I didn't even know what color they were going to be.
The bulbs were planted in the grass and the bulbs were just
about to nothing when we moved them. They are so pretty,
sure am glad we moved them home.

weren't even pretty, because they didn't develop correctly.
Now they develop and are very pretty, but they are so full the stems won't even support them. I just give up and cut them and bring them in the house to enjoy.
