More Babette Squares and Some Pretties!

I've made four more Babette squares in the size I'm currently working on. I've got 6 more to go in this size. It's so much fun to make these squares. This size is big enough to use several colors, but they're small enough that they don't take too long either. On some of them, I plan out the colors for a specific look and on other blocks I just reach into the bag of yarn and grab what comes out.

Yesterday I potted up some geraniums for the back patio. My Mother in Law got me started on geraniums several years ago because she knows how talented I am at killing things. Something else I discovered last year was the Miracle Gro Moisture Control Potting Soil. It has the plant food in it, but it also helps to prevent over and under watering (both of which I'm capable of). Potting soil that's smarter than I am is always a good idea.

The back yard faces North, which is perfect for geraniums in our climate, and I can just grab the hose and water them while Finn does his thing in the yard. Yesterday I had the sprinklers on in the back and Finn told me he absolutely had to go RIGHT NOW, so I let him out and he did his business, but as soon as he was done, he ran straight for the sprinklers and started playing in them. He checked out each individual sprinkler head (as if one of them would be spraying bacon juice). Needless to say, he was dripping when he finally came back to the door - with a big, goofy, doggy grin on his face of course.
