Buhl Bushong Continued plus Wildflower Wow!

I'm slowly making progress on assembling the center of the Buhl Bushong quilt. Get more info on it HERE. 

I knew this could pose a problem. I think I have a fix for this one. I'm not going to get crazy about all of them matching perfectly. It will quilt out, right?? LOLOL 

Since my son now lives closer to me we were able to get out on a mid week hike. We warmed up 2 miles down the wrong trail...heehee

  This is what we came to see! Hillsides of wildflowers!
From the National Forest website: Set aside for its botanical interest, Iron Mountain provides habitat for more than 300 species of flowering plants, which share their beauty throughout the summer season.

 A view from the old lookout platflorm,
Feeling rather patriotic on the Wednesday before 4th of July. 

 Lovely old growth trees.
This was from the 4th of July. Elsa and I went out for a 5K parade of one!! LOL

I hope your week is going well.

  9. Your hiking photos are always wonderful. We, Melbourne, are back in lockdown for 6 weeks. They call it the a second wave as we had got down to days of zero new cases. Some apartment blocks have lock-ins. They are not allowed outside and their food , everything is delivered.
    At least we have a garden and if this Winter weather isn’t too cold we can enjoy the fresh air.
    Lots of sewing being done and Hubby has his vegetable garden, shed etc to keep him busy, so all good.
