78 in the pool, 88 in the house. Just unspeakably perfectly perfect. I finally see 100+ temps in our forecast (and am one of a small handful of people here happy to see them).
It’s been a long cold Spring, but by God here we go.
Above, the view peeking through the honeysuckle trellis to the East, and the trellis with slats painted sky-blue. Perhaps the photo will warm you if you are in a still-frozen land.
Below, who knew that cicadas were so cute? Those red eyes slay me, they are like drops of glossy paint. That is exactly the colour of orange-red I love to use for accent.
I wonder if the East Coast is ready for its cicada invasion. I might be so lucky as to encounter them myself, as I’m headed out to see my sailor and visit Boston for the first time next month.
I put the Baronet in charge of my email, and so far he hasn’t really done anything but I feel great about it.
I’ve been working on another Zigged Band exploration, same sorts of ideas as the Fortuneteller Bangle, but going in a different design direction. I’ve done mine with fairly soft tension so I can work both sides of it at once, and hold it flat if I want to.
