It's been a while since I've posted any yard pictures, and this wonderfully blooming Bougainvillea is pretty spectacular. We've planted several different varieties of Bougainvillea since we moved here 3 years ago, and this is the nicest one. Some of the others have passed on - so we're very happy to have this one. It's kind of a "hit or miss" with plants here in Arizona - they must be able to stand the heat and drought, and sometimes even though others may be able to grow them fine, we haven't always been so lucky.
I've made a lot of progress on the Palette Shawl and am "determined" to get it finished before I pick up something else to knit. It may be called "stubborn" instead of "determined". LOL
I went to a meetup today at a local coffee shop for women over 50 in Maricopa. What a fun group of ladies who meet every couple of weeks - sometimes at members homes and sometimes at other places! Part of the group is interested in beading - which is a hobby I quit working on several years ago - I guess knitting started consuming so much of my time. Anyway, I'm now anxious to get back in the "beading" mode.
