Using what daylight there was yesterday I worked a little more on my “Dark Star” temari. It is a flower as well now.
In flower: Vinca major (periwinkle), primrose, gorse, daisy
Spotted: ladybird on a last year’s broad-leaved willowherb plant, daffodil shoots under wild cherry trees
Thinking about flowering: opposite-leaved golden saxifrage near the pond
Making: what I’m calling a Dark Star temari
Eating: thick lentil soup (lentils, onions, celery, tomato purée, chicken stock, squash, some leftover fragrant rice, a couple of small potatoes)
