Nice interpretation Dan...we can all use a little peace and quiet in our sometimes noisy lives.

And what better place than with a cozy quilt! Love your garden quilt Smitty and Clara...those are so beautiful! What a treasure of talent you are! You've brought your garden indoors.

(And thanks!) 8)

no but it would make it a bit easier deciding which flowers to put in your quilt..I have over 300 photos from last gardening season! and then there are the 400+ of orchid shows for last two years :-)

Clara your quilts are beautiful!! I've made a few of those in my day too :-)

thanks Carol...nice to see you have a few spare minutes to pop in and visit :-)

Thank you for the kind compliments. And if you don't check my spelling, I won't check yours :lol: (looks right though)

EEK!! Sorry for delay in getting back to hosting, gardeners.

Yeah, Laura's answer re: cheating is much better, K. I already forgot the question! chucklchortle

Of your QUELLECTION Kat, like centre photo's composition bestest. Quite lovely! "Stealing" Quince and Quadracolour thistle photos for my Forever Garden folder as well, thanks in advance! :P
Ladleful of Cleome Rose Queen and Hummer is fabulous addition, Queen Onethera of old. ;o}

Nothing is more welcome than scenes of Quietude, Dan. Was looking for evidence of beaver dam building a la Trailblaze's pond. I wonder what differentiates a "lake" from a "pond" in Ontario surveys.

OCH! Tante, your being Quiet has always made me uneasy. nudgenudgewinkwink

Faerie holding the gazing ball would look perfect on our old stump of garden people, Smitty. Geez Louise, but you are an accommodating quilter of fleurs! I'd like one of your reptilian friends portraiture, SVP. :mrgreen:
Thanks for info. RED OAK definitely on my wish list, Sharon. Will be sure there's a very wide space for it. ;o} [ wonder if Ron has one on his property.]

You're the quite the gifted quiltress, Clara! I've been working on a quilted wallhanging for almost 3 years now. At least, collecting bits of fabric for a design which is still in me 'ead. laff

ImageLast year my Quilt theme was Yellow Fleurs. This year I used Soup candidates that hit the editing room floor and haven't time to correct partial 5th column therefore title is "DUD QUILT". muttermutter;o}
