>4 days to go: gettin’ there

>Rather than show you an almost identical stretch of the ‘quilt-inside-a-big-beige-and-black-sack-with-elephants-on’, I’ll content myself with telling you that I’ve just rounded the final corner of the hand sewing of the binding, so have one side, plus an equivalent length for the hanging sleeve [ or casing or rod pocket ] still to do … and a label
Just as well it’s nearly done because the phony gel nails go on tomorrow morning, and heaven alone knows whether I’ll be able to wield a needle after that. Last time I had fake nails on I couldn’t manage a needle if my life depended on it.

Today’s completely unrelated pix are some of the [ mostly unidentified ] tiny wildflowers popping up all over the block.
Several of these I’ve never seen before … maybe it’s all that rain we’ve had lately.

This one I DO know – because they’re positively everywhere at this time of the year … known locally as ‘Old Boy’s Orchids’, they are Waxlip Orchids, glossodia major.


This one is Common Rice Flower, pimelia humilis


The next three I have no idea – Marcie? Janine ? you’ve lived up here forever … can you identify any of them ?
and gratuitous goats:
