Rolling Stone Quilt Block and Walking Wednesdays

Rolling Stone 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 walked around my neighborhood. 
Up high, I see large, sandstone rock formations in some of my neighbor's yards.

 Down by my feet, I see Wild Geraniums 
Common Daisy or Oxeye Daisy
Trailing Daisy or Whiplash Daisy
(the flowers are only 1/2 - 3/4" wide)

 Red Clover
Field Bindweed up close

and growing all alongside the road

Yellow Stonecrop with flowers only 1/4" wide

Creamy Thistle or Prairie Thistle

 Elkweed, also known as Green Gentian, Monument Plant, or Deer's Ears

And at eye level, I see Mountainspray
The wood would supposedly not burn so was used by Native Americans
to make roasting tongs and by pioneers to make wooden nails.

  1. Nice street Susan. You do live out in the country don't you. Like the block for today.

  2. That pretty hunk of sandstone doesn't look like it will be rolling anywhere soon. I love the variety of wild flowers along your walk.

  3. Beautiful walk...thanks for taking us along!

  4. You live in an incredibly beautiful place. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Wow, you live in a beautiful part of the world.


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