Wildflower Quilt

G’Day Mob,

It’s been crazy busy around Rocky Springs this month; the craziness compounded by my annual bout with hay fever and an internet connection that won’t connect.

The rains have forgotten to fall again so we have been moving cattle around – some we have on agistment further south where they have funny-looking green stuff to eat, and others we have out on the local stock routes. Tending cattle on the stock routes can be quite relaxing if all the bovinesĀ are where they are supposed to be, and have not chosen 30 minutes before last light to explore theĀ outer regions of the route and go walk-about.

Now I may not be a quilter like the famous Coolatai Crafty Ladies but I do enjoy photography so, with cattle parked under a tree for their daily camp, I went in search of wildflowers and constructed my own version of a quilt.

What do you reckon? Should I start quilting, stick with photography, or just keep an eye on those cows disappearing through the scrub?
