This is Durante
the little chipmunk that calls our garden
One of his favourite spots to sit is on the clay pot of Pansies
which is on one of our kitchen window ledges
making it easy to get some cute, quick, photos of him.
I think he must be use to seeing me with a camera by now
and is totally unfazed ... he just continues enjoying his snack.
We enjoyed a lovely long weekend here in Canada
and even though we saw our share of rain
we also saw our fair share of sunshine and warm winds.
Hubby and I enjoyed trips to a few nurseries to pick up garden plants and hanging baskets,
and spent the majority of the long weekend outside.
And when the rain started up, we picked up fish & chips for dinner & I brought out my knitting.
I've been working on this hexagon blanket for a while now.
Each hexagon takes approx. 1/2 hour to make, and uses up very little wool.
Since I save just about everything ... this is perfect.
Even the tiniest bits of wool were tuned into something. When I looked at the little heap of wool clips I had beside me, like a little Sparrow, I started to twist and weave them together until I had formed a nest ♥
which grew large enough to hold 3 speckled eggs
just waiting for a little bird
our walks were filled with colour
thanks to fields of dandelions
and beautiful singing birds ♥
