Almost May

It is cold here still. People shop in summer clothes as though it is not, but the house windows are closed and the furnace is on at night. The garden shops are bare, too chilly and wet to plant now. The farmers are not in the fields because of all the rain.
I've posted a photo of a double pointed needle holder I made last winter. I got a deal on the whole set of wooden short needles so needed a way to keep track of them. I saw a similar one on ebay and just used the corduroy I had in the stash. I'm thinking about a neater way to number the pockets but haven't come up with it yet. They number from 0 to 10.
My tulips have bloomed and the petals are bedraggled from all the wind and rain. I'm going to walk down the road and rescue some purple violets from the roadside before the city mower cuts them down.
