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.

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.
