First Plant of 2009
Well, it took a bit of thinking and searching (I wasn’t initially planning to try and plant letterboxes in winter), but I found a location for my first Quilt Stamp ~ Mennonites of Waterloo County. This is the beginning of a series of 20 quilt stamps that will take you to different “Mennonite” locations in the extended Kitchener-Waterloo area. (I have the 20 quilt squares picked out, but not all yet carved). This one is in St. Jacob’s, the hub of Mennonite country. It was a lovely excuse to get out of the truck and go for a short walk and get some fresh air and see some of the countryside. (When I travel to KW I am spending 6 hours in the truck minimum). I personally don’t enjoy the “hum” of the town as much as I enjoy the solitude of the trail. There were lots of winter birds feeding along the trail and I got this picture of a downy woodpecker just after it left a suet ball. It was a lovely afternoon jaunt ~ and there’s a new LB out there with a HH in it ~ for those of you in Ontario to search out. Have fun!!!
