I finished up my secret project and it is ready for a morning mail out. So I decided to put together my rows for this wonderful quilt inspired by Beth. I love her border treatment, but I am going with a 4.5" white border (that should just about use that up) followed by a double row of 2.5" squares - I hope it tames that scrap barrel. Maybe doing a scrappy border will give me less stress - you know how I hate to add borders. I will have just enough of the black used for the star points for the binding to tie it together.

We finally had some warm, sunshiney days that just made everything just POP to life. This is an apple tree just off the corner of my side of the main house. I bought it 22 yrs ago for my Dad for Father's Day. We lost our large orchard to a tornado in 1989 and we missed having all those lovely fruit trees. This was marked a 'miniature' (there is actually about a dozen behind the barn now hidden by this tree) and there were two cherry trees too but they developed a fungus and we lost them.
Look how dense those blossoms are! This tree has come into it's maturity - so wish my Dad could see this. I took the photos from my porch because it was also dense with bees working their magic. We have a couple of days of severe storms rolling in - a by-product of the plains storms - so I want those little buzzy fuzzies to enjoy those flowers before they are gone.
I want to thank all you wonderful people for dropping by and leaving a comment as to your favorite flower. I even had to look a few up as I was not familiar with them. And so many of you were great at including your e-mail, but I still had no-reply responders. You are missing out sweet things. Please check your profile settings and if you prefer not to have your e-mail listed then at least include it in your comments. If we can't find you, you can't win. And to that - I had my first and second random pull - no replies and I looked for something because I didn't want you to miss out, but I am not a magician. So I pulled number three random:
I will send her an e-mail for posting information. Please don't be a no-reply, I have another super give away coming up on my Birthday Week (17th-23rd) that you won't want to miss out on.
