Today, I will share some of my favorite blooms from the past season. In April, we were fortunate enough to travel through Texas when the bluebonnets were blooming. It has been years since I laid in the bed of bluebonnets. I absolutely love a landscape ground cover painted blue with splashes of green and a touch of white. It was a plus to not run into a rattlesnake! They love bluebonnets too.
On a recent trip to our daughter’s in Durango, Colorado we checked something off of our bucket list–taking a train ride in the Colorado Rockies on the Narrow Gauge Railroad, between Durango and Silverton. This restored steam train offers scenic, seasonal rides and ends at a museum displaying machinery. If you ever have a chance to go, I’d strongly suggest that you do so! It was awesome. Enjoy the photos.
Sometimes, I like to post things that may not pertain to quilting but are extremely interesting. Such is the case today. On a recent trip to visit our daughter in Durango, Colorado, we took a day trip to Silverton. What an awesome place! I ran across the coolest bank in the Wild West. I felt like I had stepped back into the 1800’s.
My sister and brother-in-law recently visited from Kansas. We always gallivant when they are here and spend time on picturesque Blue Ridge Mountain winding country roads. One day, we ran across an awesome sight—some folks were tapping maple syrup! My brother-in-law, Larry Tedford, took this photo with my camera.A few years ago, we took a step back in time when attending Highland Maple Festival in an area known as “Virginia’s Switzerland.” What a beautiful place with breathtaking mountain views! The annual event was designated a “Local Legacy” by the Library of Congress in 1999.
