My first like of the week - all of you who commented on my question about whether or not to put water in my new iron. Thanks for your input! It seems that most people DON'T put water in their irons anymore, and use a spray bottle for spritzing the fabric instead, so that's what I've decided to do, too. So far, that's working just fine!
I like going out to my garden and harvesting fresh lettuce for a delicious dinner salad! Because our backyard is so shady, it's one of the few vegetables I can grow out there!
If you've read some of my previous I Like Thursday posts, you know that my husband and I like to explore the natural areas and open spaces that communities around northern Colorado have developed for all of us to enjoy. Saturday, we went to a new one to us - Soapstone Prairie Natural Area - which we really liked.
It is truly an amazing place where you can see forever; full of wildflowers, birds, and butterflies.
We've gotten pretty good at identifying birds we see, but it was a new experience to try to identify this butterfly. They were all over the place as we walked!
We think this is a type of Fritillary. In researching it, I think there are 6 different types of fritillaries in Colorado, and they all look a lot alike!
On another day, we spent some time wandering around looking for yellow-headed blackbirds, and found them in a couple different open space areas. They like to nest in the reeds by ponds, so if you know where to look, there they are! They are beautiful birds!
Back at home, I've been sewing every day, and I really like my set of square OmniGrid Rulers that came with four different sizes. I don't have many specialty rulers, but these have been a good purchase and I use them a lot!
Thanks for visiting! Hope you are enjoying a great week!
