Summer is here!  What a glorious time of year in Victoria.  The weather has been very warm,  and it is so nice to wake up to clear, blue skies!  My little balcony garden is bursting with color, and you can always find me out there when I have a few spare minutes.  What could be better than a quick knit summer project, sunshine, and a cool drink?
