Sunday on the water

It is so lovely to be out on the water regularly again.  We still cannot quite believe it - the boat has spent so much time with the engine out of order over the last eighteen months that it had begun to feel like an expensive encumbrance, instead of something to be enjoyed.  But this weekend we have indeed been enjoying it.

It really does feel like spring now.  After the long winter everything seems to have suddenly burst into bloom together, there are swathes of primroses and carpets of celandines, clumps of violets in the hedgerows, and everywhere there are the starry spikes of ramsons - and that's something else to which we always look forward.

Wild garlic leaves - or ramsons.  In this case, soon to be lunch, together with scrambled eggs and a bit of smoked salmon.  And very nice it was, too.

Not a lot of knitting content this time.  I have finished a pair of socks.  That's it.  I think the yarn was Trekking XXL, I cannot possibly remember the shade number.

And, because I was asked - here is a picture of Jess, who is not really a pup any more.  She's three years old now.  Time goes by so fast....

More knitting content next time, I hope.

Oooo thank you for the peek at Jess! It does seem like only a year or so ago she was so, so tiny.

Those views of the river are pretty fabulous too!

Oh... to be floating on a river... thank you :)

Three years old? She can't be. That's a photograph of some other dog, surely? The ramsons sound lovely.
