Monday, Monday

April 28, 2014

This is my kind of Monday, loads of roses, a bright blue sky AND we're heading to the beach to meet our son and granddog.  Just a perfect Monday, Monday.  
I've finished a baby sweater and just about ready to publish another doll sweater pattern.  I'm having so much fun with doll clothes and have quite a few more in the works.  
The photos were taken over an hour this morning, the morning haze was slowly lifting to reveal an azure sky.

  1. That's your garden? It's stunning. Just breathtaking!

  2. what a fabulous garden, it must take a lot of very hard work, but tremendously worthwhile. We are heading into Autumn over here in Melbourne Australia, and a very grey dismal rainy day, but we certainly need the rain after a long hot dry summer. great to see your beautiful sunny flower filled garden. I am looking forward to getting out of my leg cast this week and into a moon boot a bit more mobility at least. Still plenty of time for knitting. Thanks for the gorgeous pictures to brighten the day.

  3. Your garden is beautiful and stunning Kristen. I love seeing all the beautiful roses that you have. Gorgeous!

  4. I'd say Monday was a perfect day for you. Your garden looks beautiful.

  5. What a gorgeous garden! All these flowers ... breathtaking!
