linen summer bag

today, i feel great accomplishment on this project
i started while ago.  i began knitting with grey and
blue as i as thought those were perfect for the summer,
then as the season matures, my thoughts shifted
to greenish blue to get more soothing comfort to
get along with this humidity and sizzling weather
nmm, it took such a long time to finish
sunday is ending with quite contentment

morning air

strange, strange
it feels like autumn is already here
air feels much like september
yet, cicada singing outside is a good reminder
summer hasn't gone not for a while
many ideas pops in while i knit

what to sow next

first harvest of the season!
the process of growing plants from the seed takes
lo~ng time.  sometimes, it even seems like they
are testing our patience.  no matter how big or small they
are, it is such a rewarding feeling to harvest
grown vege from it's stem.   this morning, i cut
two bitter melons.  one thin and the other fat one. 
they are two different kind.  
sowing seeds, watering daily, seeing their first sprouts
and then observing how they mature....all these process
is favorite of mine when standing in the garden.
now, it is in the middle of the season,
but i still feel like "what seeds to sow next!"

i walked to the outlet store and bought a new mug cup
and green olive in a jar.   funny looking shape of the jar ☺
i am already thinking about how i want to use it when it become empty.
in the evening, i have to carry this mosquito repellent
when getting out to the garden....
here is my current garden
first cardiospermum balloon this year


this is one of my "free pot". it mean
they can streach arms and lesg however they want. and
any sprouts come out in this pot is free to go on their lives,
i won't bother them.
it is fun to observe what's in this.

avocaco has very supportive company

more new sprouts in this old old pot
in a shady location.  

who could write such a beautiful letter to
a stranger.  
 it was  fun to receive and read it.
thank you so much jennifer.
mine is on the way and i hope one day
you will open your own blog.  you have
so much you can share with rest of the world.
and thank you vibeke too for organizing fun projects.
