Wildflowers and Lilacs

Several of the forest Columbines (Buttercup family) have put down roots in my garden...how fortunate for me!

They are just coming into bloom.

This Columbine was found growing at the forest's edge. The flowers are a sweet favourite of the hummingbirds.

False Solomon's-Seal (Lily) in the same area.

Fragrant lilacs.

On the knitting scene:
I have been reading Lily Chin's book Knitting *tips & tricks. In the chapter titled Fixing Mistakes, she writes: "Mistakes are inevitable. Who among us is perfect?" This is a wonderful gem, not only for knitting, but for life as well. She cautions us: "don't focus on the mistakes", "accept" them and "be gentle with yourself". Thank you Lily.
