Flora and Fauna

So ... these pictures are not of Arizona.
Not even close.
These pictures are from our mid-west adventure.
These pictures are of the Dub's backyard.
(So ... it's at an apartment complex, sue me, they still walk out their door and see this.)
I love Arizona ... really I do, but somedays you just want to look at this.
Somedays you just want a little foliage in your life.
But, you know me ... perky as always. If the flora can't come to the front yard, then the fauna will come to the fabric.

Remember these guys? Well, the evolution continues. I grew my own garden with some hand embroidery, finished her up and now she only wants quilting and binding.
I'm tickled pink.

How about you?

Pretty pics and lovely quilt. Lucky me, I got/get to see both in person. The trees and rivers and ponds and fall colors were beautiful on the drive across half the county. And while fauna means animals (but maybe there are duck, geese, and squirrel appliques to follow--reflecting the fauna that are abundant next to those trees in the pictures), that was a really clever and alliterative couplet and segue.

Great ... I am just now realizing that PDaddy's tip about "fauna" is a fuzzy fact from fourth or fifth grade. My bad. Can I honestly be expected to store that tidbit of information until now? I know, I know ... PDaddy managed to, but he stores EVERYTHING in that computer of a mind. So ... no unfair comparisons.
