It's warm, humid and the flowers are blooming and busy with bees. Tomatoes are ripening, hopefully the melons, too, and my daughter's feeling lots of life inside. I'm knitting a baby sweater for the ripening grandchild. I have all the pieces of the sweater finished but it's going slowly because I'm learning to pick up stitches and I'm a bit unsure of what I'm doing. It's August - slow is good.
