I've spent a lot of time watching the comings and goings at the butterfly bush this weekend. Swallowtail butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. Haven't been able to take a picture of the hummingbirds. They don't like it when I get to close.
Luckily there is a window right in front of the butterfly bush.
Thursday evening one of the hummingbirds paused for a few moments to look the window. I suspect to check out reflections but it seemed as if she was stopping to say hello.
Not much making this week. I called this scarf done on Wednesday.
It makes a wonderful headband.
So much going on in the garden right now. Always something to discover.
Another couple weeks and there won't be anywhere to walk in here.
"We live in a world where everything is connected to everything else...So whatever we do, from the food we eat, to the products we buy, use and throw away, has repercussions. And so the way we live carries huge responsibilities. Freedom carries with it responsibility and we are not isolated from everything else. We are exquisitely connected."
"We can all be part of something that can grow into a movement. What matters is, we try."
Harvested from the garden today.
Banana fiber yarn dyed with the leaves from an apple tree.
Tomatoes from the farmer's market. I suspect I will have my own by the 4th of July.
"I think anyone who travels knows that you're not really doing so in order to move around-you're traveling in order to be moved. And really what you are seeing is not just the Grand Canyon or the Great Wall but some moods or intimations or places inside yourself that your ordinarily never see when you are sleep walking through your daily life." From an interview with Pico Iyer at On Being.
