Country Path Quilt Block and Walking Wednesdays

Country Path Quilt Block

Walking Wednesdays is a new weekly feature of my blog, focusing on my walks and the sites that I see along the way throughout the week.  Of course, I will tie each walking adventure into a quilt block! 

This week I enjoyed walking at my friend Peggy's home after Bible study there.  She lives on 35 acres out in the country with a LONG driveway.  I walked up and down this country path, enjoying the views.

I loved seeing her neighbor's cows across the fence
and the wild flowers at my feet, including Black-Eyed Susan
Prairie Coneflower - also known as Mexican Hat
The flower head resembles the traditional hat worn during Mexican fiestas.
Musk Thistle - really prickly!
Leafy Cinquefoil
and Common Yarrow
Check out all my Walking Wednesdays posts here.

  1. Very nice prairie flowers- I love brown eyed susans which are similar but different than your hat flowers- I also love yarrow which is a little like queen anne's lace.. We have one called Indian paintbrush that you find in the mountains. It is very pretty and is often found in the ditches along the roads.

  2. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing your walk.


I love hearing from readers. Your comments make my day!
