Had a nice day yesterday for my birthday. We drove over to the new house it's about an hour and a half from where we live now. Its not that far away (as the crow flies) its just that you have to cross two ranges of hills (not really mountains, about 1500 ft). Basically we are on the west side of the Napa Valley and we are moving to the east side of the Napa Valley. It's beautiful but will be about 10 degrees hotter in the summer and 10 degrees colder in the winter time. There is even light dustings of snow. I digress, while we were there we went to the lake and had a picnic and the boys went swimming. Not a bad way to spend your birthday.

I haven't been doing many projects, it seems everything right now is about moving. My daughter wanted me to knit her a headband. I just finished it but it still needs to be blocked. Will take a picture when I can.
Thought I would show you some pictures of my lace-cap hydrangea. Pretty huh, one of my favorite flowers.
Enjoy your week......

Hi, Jane! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

The hydrangea is beautiful. I've never seen this particular kind before.

Happy Birthday!

happy "late" birthday, i'm glad you had a nice day. I love the hydrangea, the pink in your lacecap is gorgeous. I've got one of them too, although mine is blue. I know, pH and all that. My regular hydrangeas often turn a lovely shade of purple in summer. I'll post pics when they're there.
BTW..that Maine Lobster Dinner? Anytime. :-) Good luck with your move.
