Hope your week is going well!
Thanks for visiting on "I Like Thursday," hosted by
LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color.
I like my geranium which has not really bloomed all summer, but must have decided the end of October needed a little pink in it!
We went for a walk at our local natural area the other day and Mike got this great picture of the cattails at the edge of the pond.
The largest fire in Colorado history is burning just a few miles from here and you can see it from town! That's not a like, but certainly something that has shaped my week.
I'm sure the foothill and mountain wildlife is being displaced by the fire, and we happened to see several beautiful Steller's Jays in our yard the other day. Normally they are not backyard birds at all, but stay in the mountains.
I think this is a good example of ugly gardening, that our friend, Jocelyn at Canadian Needle Nana, has posted about. We've been working on leaf pick-up the last couple weeks, but it is really fun to see the birds and squirrels hunting around under the leaves that remain, looking for tasty morsels!
I have loved this book this week, and really recommend it! (And not just because there are penguins in it, lol!)
And just to have something quilting-related to share - in my Tuesday post I showed the yellow HSTs that were ready to be sewn into the zigzag row - and here they are with all their colorful buddies!
Rows are ready to be sewn together now!
That's it from here for this week! Don't forget to visit the other I Like Thursday bloggers over at Not Afraid of Color!
