Roses grow

(Bonus points for anyone who recognizes the song title)

It's been a crazy week, so I've been knitting but have had no time to photograph knitting, and am sharing a shot of my roses which suddenly budded and opened over the last few days. There are also a few flax plants flowering near them, as well as my lavender all budding. This is such a fun time of year.

So instead I will share a few fun things. I just finished reading Love is a Mix Tape. This is probably my favourite book in a while. It's an autobiography, and is both hysterically funny and sad and poignant. It will make you appreciate all the loved ones in your life. Each chapter starts with a mix tape song list, and it actually made me want to try and reconstruct those mix tapes... although I didn't (and anyway, some of the songs are kind of scary).

My other favourite thing these days is the album Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer by Of Montreal. It's just truly brilliant. He is just an amazing lyricist, and the songs are catchy and weird. I think Bunny Ain't No Kind of Rider is my favourite song of the album.

The roses looks fab! I can almost feel the scent from them ;)
That book I have to search for at the library. It sounds like a perfect summerreading, though I prefer detective stories ;)
