Pukipuki’s Spring Garden

Pukipuki my dear Puki,

How does your garden grow?

With gentle rain and golden sun,

She has blossoms all in a row.

Just in case it isn’t obvious yet, I LOVE flowers.  One of my favorite places to visit is the Chicago Botanic Gardens.  In fact, I wish that I lived across the street from the gardens.  I am sure that I would spend more time there than not.  I could see myself finding a bench (always in a different spot) and knitting and embroidering away the day.  Sigh…  It really is a beautiful place with so many different gardens.  If I tried, I could not pick out a favorite spot.  Sigh, again…  If you ever visit Chicago and love gardens you might want to add this to your “places to visit” list.

Soon our spring bulbs will start to bloom here in northern Illinois.  Pukipuki has gotten a head start on her gardens.  They are blooming along the hemline of her mint green and sky blue knit dresses.  Teeny tiny daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, and grape hyacinths are everlastingly in their glory on these dresses.

Sugar’s tiny pots of tulips were brought back from Amsterdam by my sweet husband.  Aren’t they cute?

Sugar takes such good care of her pretty tulips.
