Spring Report from Cambridge

In my house, it’s still cold. The heat is on. I’m knitting blanket squares.

Yes, that’s a dalek.

(Here’s the washcloth version. You can knit one, too. The pattern is by Penwiper and you can find it here.)

Spring tulips shivering on my messy desk.

The trees are starting to flower but I was wearing winter coat,
scarf, hat, and gloves when I took this (blurry) picture.

In my own living room rain forest,

beautiful things are happening… (this pic taken by Kevin and Fancy Camera…)
and this orchid, previously believed to be dying,
grew a whole new stalk and has six big fat buds!

Makes me hopeful.
Happy spring, Northern Hemisphere!
