Every week I have the intention of posting every day (well, at least 5 days out of the week). What happens, you ask? I don't know. My life just isn't that exciting. I don't knit (and finish items) especially fast. And I'm not witty enough to make a great post out of something mundane. And then there's the thing with the camera.

Last weekend I donated 2 hat & scarf sets and one felted knit bag to the auction at the QP's school. I even made nice little "Angelia's Knitting" sleeves to hold the hat/scarf sets together. The sleeves also listed fiber content, care instructions, and hat/scarf measurements.

Have you seen them? No? Well, that's because I didn't take any pictures of them before I turned them in. There I had a nice post - all those finished items - and I forgot to take pictures! Duh!

In other news...I got a beautiful postcard from my SP8 today. It had a rose on the front. Very pretty and very sweet! Thanks SP!

I'll leave you with some pictures (since this is such a lame post!)...

This is the wisteria. If you remember the Backyard Greetings meme several months ago, you'll remember that this was bare. The day that I took these pictures, the wisteria was buzzing (from all the bees that were at the flowers). It was a little unsettling to walk under this buzzing wisteria, but I was willing to walk into danger for the sake of providing you all with wisteria pictures.

The wisteria flowers, up close.

I'm not sure what these flowers are. They're growing up the side of the shed. When we first got this shed, the QP was pretty little. You can't tell from this picture, but it kind of looks like a little barn. The QP kept talking about this cow. It took us a while to realize that she thought it was a barn & that a cow was living in it.

This is a close up of the shed flowers...whatever they may be!

MAKE it a great day!

I actually don't think this is a lame post at all! And you know, hardly any of us manage to blog daily, it's just that normal daily life tends to get in the way of knitting and blogging, unfortunately :) So don't worry, we'll all be patiently waiting for your next entries!
I absolutely adore the wisteria, it's such a gorgeous one! And the flowers growing at the side of your shed are so beautiful as well, it's simply amazing to see how quickly they'll grow up if they're allowed to! Lovely pics, thanks for sharing!

Wow, you have two out of three of my favorite flowers in this post! (What, no lilacs?) lol I keep my camera with my knitting basket so I always have it near. Of course, that doesn't always work anyway.

I know I should recognize those flowers by the shed but I'm not sure what they are. But they're beautiful anyway!

The view of your yard is serene. I love the flowers. Wisteria is a favorite of mine and when the bees are buzzy it is always at the height of beauty.
I try to post everyday but often have nothing to say.

Oh my, blogging every day? Who are you kidding? I could never imagine blogging that much, my time is so sparse. I love the flowers!

your garden is gorgeous! I think that vine by your shed is a clematis.

Ah, your clematis is growing beautifully! I love clematis -it's my very favorite vine. The wisteria is stunning too -although the bees do sound a bit freaky.
