Comparisons

I finished the first bobbin of greens this morning:

Then I decided to work straight into the double marl of the light and dark for the next bobbin.

I like it SO much better! I may even double marl the rest of the bobbins. It’s so pretty! And so much better blended.

We are having a nice slow weekend here. It’s one of those weekends where you aren’t sure if it’s going to rain or not, and it rains in fits and starts. I went for a walk yesterday, the rain started when I was furthest from home, but didn’t continue. When I got home, Mr. Ink was mowing in between rains, so I helped him with that. Good thing too, as it had begun to rain again when we had about 1/4 of the lawn left.

Today he was out there messing up my lawn.

He’ll be planting a nice tree there, but just as soon as he finished digging this hole, the rain began to come down hard and sideways. So, now he’s got a mess of wet dirt saved to place elsewhere, and a muddy nasty large hole with no tree in it. Hopefully it’ll clear again shortly.

I’ve got a bunch more plants to plant, and plants to move around, but until it quits raining and I can drown the slugs in some beer, I dare not plant them, so they are sitting around on our outdoor table just waiting for an evening lacking in rain.

It’s a quiet weekend here, and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

  1. both greens are pretty! As is your yard. I would love to take some of that rain off your hands, we are dust dry here. They said it would rain today, and it is cloudy and cool but no water falling from the sky. Good luck with the slugs! That is one good thing about a dry sandy yard, they stay in the woods.
