Do you suppose, that waiting hands on eyes,
Veronica has gone to hide?
and all the time she laughs at those who shout
her name and steal her clothes.
Veronica, Veronica, Veronica
Veronica sits in her favorite chair
she sits very quiet and still
when they called her a name that they never get right
and that they'l know nobody else will
well she used to have a carefree mind of her own
with a devilish look in her eye
saying you can call me anything you like
but my name is Veronica
Although the single stalk of Veronica is not necessarily a breathtaking beauty, it has always held a special place in the garden for me. You see, Veronica was my grandmother's name and is the middle name of both my mother and her sister. As a young child, I was always mesmerized by that name. Not quite sure if I loved it or loved it not. It was also the name of the bossy vixen in my favorite childhood comic book, The Archie's.
These days though.........I love it, the name, the flower and the song!
I have promised myself that I would finish the projects that have been languishing in my project basket. This is when it is so very hard for me to fight that lovely ADD gene that I seemed to have inherited. Starting things is never a problem for me as the excitement of something new is always so invigorating, but finishing things that are bigger than one sock........well, ummm.....that is a different tale.
Having finished the wool peddler shawl, I have moved on to the next project in the basket....Anne's Hypotenuse, worked in dk brown silky wool. This wool is fabulous stuff!
Thankfully she is a small girl, so there is a very good chance this will be finished before she heads back to Plymouth for the winter (her boyfriend is a grad student)
That's it for now.............have a GREAT weekend! The weather here has finally cooled down, so we will be outside enjoying the days :-)
