Another Finished Quilt, and a Nature Walk
Today I finished the last of the four quilts that Teresa brought for me to quilt. This one was fun, a patchwork quilt of richly-colored squares.
The quilting does not show up too well on the top, but it does on the pieced flannel back.
This Paulownia, also known as the Empress tree, was in bloom. It is only a few years old, probably grown from a seed carried in a bird dropping, as it just "volunteered." They say this tree might be the original "Tree of Life." This tree grows incredibly fast.
The roundabout on my street looks nice with all the pansies in bloom.
When I got to Hidden Pond, I noticed there was a brood of baby goslings swimming among the flock of Canada geese.
