Knitting the Seasons...June...A rose

I can't quite believe it, but I'm on the verge of catching up my postings of this year-long project.  The theme for June was a beautiful rose in a friend's garden.

Day 3
By Day 4, the rose had wilted, however I had knit a good-sized swatch.

I'm off to Alaska for three weeks, and will be trying something new for the July theme.  I've second-guessed the colours of the ocean and rain forest, and have packed a variety of small amounts of greens, blue-greens, blues, and blue-violets.  I hope to be knitting en plein air (which gives a new meaning to the knit stitch, a.k.a. "plain knitting"...)
