Spring, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king,     
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
    Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

The palm and may make country houses gay,
Lambs frisk and play, the shepherds pipe all day,
And we hear aye birds tune this merry lay:
    Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

The fields breathe sweet, the daisies kiss our feet,
Young lovers meet, old wives a-sunning sit,
In every street these tunes our ears do greet:
    Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to witta-woo!

from Summer’s Last Will and Testament by Thomas Nashe (1600)

I got 100 flowers to knit & crochet book by Lesley Stanfield for Christmas. 
I think now it is the time to use it. :-)
A collection of beautiful blooms for embellishing clothes, accessories, cushions and throws..
The flowers are gorgeous, well written patterns and nice pictures.  
A beautiful book that I'll be keeping for sure. 

Looky looky what I've made!
