stay inside weekend

It rained all day Saturday then by early Sunday 
evening the clouds began to clear.

I stayed in, drank copious amounts of green tea with ginger
and inspired by V's beautiful mittens, started a new knitting project.

Narcissus bulbs are now nearly a week grown, the photo is from last Wednesday.
I read somewhere to start bulbs out of direct sunlight to prevent them from growing too tall.
Mine always seem to topple over when they bloom!

The painting was also part of the visiting collection from the Hague
and gathered almost as many admirers as the Vermeer.
The Goldfinch, by Carel Fabritius

Hope everyone had a great weekend.
