It’s official! As of last Thursday, it’s spring! And here in the PNW, it’s just gorgeous! (Sorry to those of you in the Great White North still dealing with snow and cold. You might want to skip this post. I don’t want to make you jealous.)
The flowers here are just starting to bloom and we’re getting some beautiful warm spring days. I’m having a great time exploring our new garden (we moved to a new house in the fall) and finding gorgeous spring flowers as they make their appearance.
In honor of these flowers, I thought we could do some spring flower-inspired knitting.
Tiny little snowdrops were the first to bloom:

Hellebore are subtle and gorgeous. They remind me of an old, overgrown forest.

We have a handful of daffodils just starting to open:

And camellia bushes are covered with fluffy, cheerful flowers:

Our cherry tree (which I’m sure I will be cursing come fall when I have to clean up all the dropped cherries) is just beautiful and smells even better.
