Royal Bloom


These are the beautiful flowers which bloomed in my yard.
Deep and Royal looking and with a yellow dandelion which
decided to pop up with them.
lol
They seem to be spreading everywhere so I am thinking to dig the ones outside
 the box and putting them into a pot.
It was very cool last night to sleep and the day was not very hot. Kinda cloudy and we
 had a bit of a sprinkle in the morning.

In the afternoon we went out and I finally found the colors I needed to continue my afghan.
My son told me today he loves his poncho and he wants more of them.
 So I said ok and now the afghan has a neck hole lol
Now I just need to let it get longer for the back and I will have two ponchos.
One is blue and one will be checkered.
These are good to wear all year round. Like at night in summer, it keeps the mosquitoes off and the dampness and in the fall and winter you wear it over your jacket to cut the wind and keep your hands warm
under neath. Unlike wraps, these are good for men to wear.
If you have soccer kids and have to sit on cold benches, they are long enough to cover your back
with a piece to sit on and in the front they cover your knees and keep them warm too.
Even kids can wear them if they have to sit on the bench waiting for their turn to play.
I am glad my son likes them They even go well with a neck warmer which can be worn like a turtle neck till you need it to cover your head.
I will have to make enough of them so my husband has a chance to wear one as well. He is another guy who never thinks about the cold until he is standing and freezing outside. In the car they can be used to keep the legs warm as a blanket and then you can wear them.

I always think about cold weather especially today when it is so unpredictable.

Hi A Lady's Life .. they look like cornflowers, which are beautiful - I agree ..

The ponchos sound good - and obviously do what they're intended to do .. clever you in making them.

Cheers Hilary
