Green thumb?

A couple of green things are growing around here.
All my many aunts (and sadly none are still living) had prodigious green thumbs. They could grow anything - and did. They could grow from seeds, from cuttings, from pressing a leaf down into the soil. They were amazing. I've never enjoyed such talent. (But I've also never had much of an inclination.)
I received a "kit" of narcissus bulbs at Christmas. I even neglected that for several weeks, before trying it out. It grows at warp speed. Every day it is several inches taller and it looks like it will actually bud and bloom! Now my aunts could enjoy the blooms and then keep the plant alive through the years, probably even thinning out the bulbs and sharing. I doubt mine make it that far.

The Arctic Diamonds green shawl grows, too. I have 4 of the 5 repeats completed. But LOOK how much yarn is left. When I finish the fifth repeat, I'll try to determine if I have enough to do an extra. It would be nice to make it a little longer.

Looks like you might be blocking and blooming soon. The shawl looks terrific!
