Happy Valentines Day My Dears...

What a great way to start the week...
Bunches of flowers...
whether from a loved one, friend or neighbour
or maybe a bunch picked by yourself from your garden...
It really doesn't matter
They just make the day seem so much brighter...

So to all my dear friends
here is a bunch for you...
Picked from the garden of a local fellow
whose garden is just amazing...

Some Zinnias...
a favorite flower of the butterfly...
Valentines Day...My Day...

Also this week I have finished off some crocheting...

Red Wool Crocheted Top...

A lovely red wool vest
from the same Japanese crochet pattern book that I have mentioned
here...
This ended up begin about a size 14...
I will be making my next one a little bit smaller...

Detail of Red Wool Crocheted Top...

 I did find it very quick and easy to understand...
and the subtle detail on the top and edge was just perfect...
If made in wool thou you will use about 300grams so it does pay
to get more just in case...

So that it about all here at River Cottage this morning...

I do hope you all have a lovely day...

Thank you especially for the zinnias! I do love them. A lot!!!
Here, in Europe,a hard winter is playing with us.Mountains of snow have buried the houses in some regions and many km of roads are blocked ...
So, this bunch of one of my preferred flowers brighten my day!
Happy Valentines Day!

Hi Michelle! Your vest is so pretty. I have not yet tried one of the Japanese crochet books; but, I would like to buy one and give it a go -- the projects are so great.
Don't you just love zinnias?? I plant them every year for myself and the butterflies. Goldfinches love them, too...it's fun to watch them tug tug tugging at the petals to get at the seeds. I enjoy your blog!!
