Ceanothus in the Snow

This is the first in a series of crocheted blankets of my own design and making, each inspired by a different native plant or animal of California.  This one is inspired by the ceanothus (wild California lilac) bushes planted on our property as part of an ongoing ecosystem restoration project.  Now, we occasionally (though rarely) experience frost in these hills, but never any snow.  The white was mostly chosen for contrast.  There do exist mountain lilacs in the Sierras, and those bushes might see snow, now and then, and so: Ceanothus in the Snow (completed August 2016).
