Taking the photo was not easy, though. I had the thing thumbtacked to the barn wall and the wind was blowing and so I had to keep tacking it back up. And I had to wait between gusts of wind so that the quilt would stop moving around so I could take the photo.
While I was back behind the barn, I noticed this delightful little wild strawberry patch. My daughter had told me that it was back there and I had forgotten. She loves to spend time outside. When she was little, she would play all kinds of games out there, now she spends her time taking photos. Reminds me of when I was kid, we lived in a rural area and it seemed I spent all of my spare moments outside on all kinds of "adventures". And I knew that yard, the woods, every tree, like the back of my hand. Those were the days!
I also managed to grab a shot of a wasp and a bee on some goldenrod growing up along the fence.
My oldest daughter is coming home from college for the weekend. Her only request was that I cook- anything! Apparently she is tired of dining hall food! I am planning on making something that involves some of her favorite foods- eggplant, pasta, goat cheese... Stay tuned!
Finally, make sure you stop over at Martha Stewart's blog, she recently did a show all about blogging and has some great tips!
