Rocks and Flowers

The first River Rocks sock is finished. It was done exactly as the pattern calls for, except for doing a slip stitch heel flap. The Koigu held out, but there wasn't a whole lot left; probably enough to do one more pattern repeat if I had needed it. I did six pattern repeats on the leg and six on the foot for a total of twelve down the length of the sock. The second is cast on and working.

More flowers are blooming in the front yard. Bird-of-Paradise grows on the far side of the driveway and blooms reliably each summer.
And the mimosa trees are still blooming. They started in May and still flower now that the summer rains are here. There's plenty to keep that little bee busy.

Cute Monkey! My Monkeys are 6x6, too. This year, thank goddess, we get to share in the summer monsoon season. It's been a life saver;-)
