Buds and blossoms!
Floofy cotton buds are flowers too, right? No delicate petals in sight, but they sure are cute and wispy. 😍 ^ Here's a glimpse of my fluffy bouquet from ma hooman @yeokaiwen, who'd got me early Valentine's flowers (dried, so no worry about them drooping). ❤
Together with the flowers are my nearly done Marpleridge socks. (Just in time as a V-day gift to myself? 😂)I've cast off the one that's knitted mainly in minty Bud, right before I posted this up. Speckly pink Delilah is left on the needles.
Being only familiar with the Delilah from the biblical story about Samson (Delilah the temptress, the betrayer, the one who weakens), I went to look up the name. It could mean delicate, or a wordplay on the Hebrew layla="night". It's also the name of a song about a cat by Queen, and in Hey There Delilah by Plain White Tees.
I'm not sure which @peepaloofields was referring to, but I quite like that it might be pointed at Freddie Mercury's cat, 'cause the colours are so sprightly and cute. 😽 ...I'm still trying to think of a name for this project, hence my meandering thoughts on etymology.
