Mike and I were in need of a getaway day last Friday, so we plotted out a drive that included a hike, a picnic lunch, a stop at a quilt shop, and a wine tasting at our favorite winery. There was lots to like! The only thing we forgot was the camera! Oops! So I had to make do with my phone camera, but I did get a few good shots.

I Like Thursday #243
Rabbit Mountain Open Space
Boulder County, Colorado
This was a foothills hike, so lots of wide open views (and not much shade!), and uphill all the way! 😉
Wildflowers, bird sounds, and butterflies.
Tons of these little guys - Fritillaries
And these - Spotted Towhees - which we had to identify by their song because they were hidden in the trees.
And a strategically placed bench or two! 👍
From the quilt shop I brought home a couple yards of Kona Aruba, which is going to help me with an idea I have for the crumb hearts and wonky stars project. Something like this, maybe?
This could be fun, yes?!
I'm joining in with LeeAnna and friends at Not Afraid of Color for I like Thursday,
