Hello & Welcome to my 51st episode of the
KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is a pretty petaled blog by one of the sweetest bloggers you ever will read 🙂

With a mere 53 followers, I’m thinking Myra’s blog is one of the best kept secret treasures on WordPress! It was about this time last year when she found my blog and our friendship just blossomed from there ❤ Yup, there’s definitely something special about Myra! Perhaps it’s the charm of her english as a second language, or her nearly 80-year sense of gracious strength and determination, or her lovingly humble way with words… Whatever it is, she’s got it! Visit her blog and you’ll likely agree 🙂

So now at nearly 80 years of age, Myra has taken up blogging as a way of introducing her english version of “Everlasting Blossoms & Butterflies” (first published in Taiwan, 2011). Her story is a true family memoir, beginning about 100 years ago when her mom was a young girl in early 1900’s China. The story’s focus is about how her mom’s “Everlasting Blossoms” floral crochet designs came to be.

Let there be beautiful flowers
blossomed everywhere. And
butterflies flying all year long.
Keep the beautiful, joyful
spring on earth always!

the KWH iPad Show #12 💜 Lily for a Day

Hello & Welcome
to my 12th episode of the
KWH iPad Show!

Today’s feature is the first daylily bloom
from our front yard garden bouquet 🙂

pink daylily

Hey everyone! … Meet our first daylily of the year 🙂 Isn’t she lovely? Today’s photos are technically the season’s third bloom (all pink). But with a name like daylily… well… Who’s counting anyway, right?!?

We have three daylily plants in our front garden—pink, peach and purple. At least that’s how I remember it, since it’s been a while and all my daylily photos from last year are currently stuck (hopefully safely stuck) on my iMac-less hard drive :-/ I’d hoped to post photos of those, but didn’t make it in time before my iMac quit. Last year’s first daylily blooms were peach and are posted here. Wow… this year’s garden is way ahead of last year! Perhaps next year will be ripe for the purple plant to bloom first? Let’s get together here again next summer to find out! 🙂

Anyway, there’s something festive about the first flowers of the season! Now at the risk of boring you, please indulge me whilst I “make like a squirrel” and pack my knitting blog with a few flowering summer photos—in preparation for the flowerless months ahead 🙂
