This weekend was pretty cold here. Never got above 41F. I took the dogs for the required walk and found green...Spring is coming but in little bits here.
I loved this piece of moss on a tree.....it looks like a tiny bonsai that has been done by Nature.
Then we went to check on the rock tripe....they no longer look dry and grey with bits all over the ground. But there are lots more! And they are turning green. This is with what I used to make fuschia dye last year.
Once we were back I started on the quilt. I got involved in listening to my book on tape and got a lot done!
First Wild Ginger. The flowers are very small, a maroon that is almost brown and mostly hidden under large leaves.
The color in the above picture did not turn out well and is too washed out....
Then I worked on Mexican Hats. They don't hide under their leaves but push their tops toward the sun.
Next I worked on Blue Eyed Grass. These are not much as far as the flowers go....but I love the leaves that look like grass......the way they twist in the wind and and wave the flowers on their stocks.
So that's it for tonight...I now go to dream of flowers.
