Teeny Tiny Needles

I know that sometimes I am a silly goofus who goes on and on about how knitting makes me happy. But LOOK at this picture!!!


Those are size 0 needles, some yarn (string) and a quarter for scale. Arleta has made several of these babies, but I am just starting. I may need a one-legged doll when I am done, but we'll see. More pics to come, if I don't go blind or drop a stitch.

In the meantime, I've been planting peach trees! I am just starting to get into the world of gardening, and I'm having more fun than success, really. But I put mulch a couple of inches below the top level of dirt, and that's supposed to help them stay moist. I planted right in the hot, hot sun, with no shade, baby. Let's hope! While I was planting, apparently I got too close to a momma bird, who began to berate me most vociferously. I couldn't see her, she must have been deep in the bush, and she certainly wasn't ascared of me! In fact, I was wondering if she knew something I didn't, she sounded so brave. Maybe she had a minion or a secret pain-causing weapon she was trying to warn me about, but I don't speak bird. I chuckled, in my big humanly way, and kept digging. Then she sent out some big buzzing thing, and it kept diving at my head, over and over again. I would back off, and look around, but I couldn't see what it was. It sounded like a bumblebee or a BIG wasp or something. But when I got close to the bush, back the big black thing would come, buzzing at my head. So, you know, I found somewhere else to dig...

Hehe, I would have found another place to dig, too! Peaches are one of my faves, yum!

It's pretty, it's tiny, what is it?

Peach trees, yum. My brother and I were once instructed to pick all the curled peach leaves (diseased) and we ended up stripping the poor tree.

Birds are scary.
