Ships and Sunshine

Beautiful Sunshine when I woke this morning, although it seems windy.  I am not too good with weather reporting, I just look out of the window, no fancy gadgets to help.  Not like the weather channels, although they don't always get it right do they? 

Today I have added a Flower for May.

Not to be confused with The Mayflower which was the ship that sailed with the Pilgrims from Plymouth to the New World in 1620. Ha Ha!!

I have worked this one is double knitting cotton.
