Another Beautiful Day, & Handmade Me #2

Once again today I thanked whatever it is that gave me the fortune to have been born and raised in this beautiful part of the world, not to mention having the senses to be able to drink it all in, and the mobility to wander through this landscape in a reverie. We visited another favourite haunt, with wonderful wild fowl and luxurious gardens. I was excited to meet this little chap pictured above amongst the blossoms. A brush with a curry plant inspired us to come home and get cooking. 

It was also the first outing for the jumper I made a few weeks ago, although I have to admit I needed my duffle coat over it in the arctic wind! I am pleased though, as it was comfortable and takes me on another step towards operation 'Handmade Me'

  1. Your sweater looks gorgeous - well done! I am also a big fan of alliums and irises.
