Peak II

Okay, it's not quilty. But who doesn't love these oaks?
This is a bit of the view outside my sewing room window. Yeah, yeah. The sugar maples are pretty. But around here they are usually more yellow than - this. I  have a few young oaks in my yard showing lots of color. Can't wait till they are bigger.  Did I mention that we have two peaks of autumn color around here?  This is the second.

I do have my blocks ready to sew together. Maybe tonight while the ball game is on. Enjoy.

great pics of fall colors! Last week we had high winds (HIGH HIGH HIGH winds) and most the trees are bare. On the prairie where I live (vrs the camper where I want to stay!) we don't have oaks. none Today I spent an hour digging through leaves etc on the hills near my camper to find some acorns. The tree specialist (LOL--he DOES have a degree in forestry!) said I need to dig up a patch of dirt and mash my acorns in with the heel of my boot. Then mulch and leave alone. (Bur Oaks) I guess they don't like to be transplanted--tender little roots--so I will try it.
