Tonight and this weekend: Wildflowers & QuiltsAugust 16th, 2012 at Thu, 16th, 2012 at 9:05 am by Karen Dale
Tonight the Vashon Audubon Society will bloom in ALPINE WILDFLOWERS, a preview of flowers you might get to see on a hike this Sunday. At tonight’s slide presentation, “Wild about Wildflowers,” you’ll see some gorgeous flower photographs, mainly from the Cascades and Olympics, but ranging as far as Yosemite and the Rockies. At the Land Trust building off the main intersection of town, 7pm.
I’m guessing these are Randy Smith photos, as their website says, “Over the past twenty years he has evolved from casual observer to amateur botanist, while also having hiked hundreds of happy miles and taking thousands of photographs.” Click on the link here: http://www.vashonaudubon.org/calendar.html
QUILTS QUILTS AND UFO QUILTS! This Saturday, August 18, Grannie’s Attic will host its annual outdoor Quilt Sale. Says Granny Textile Curator Vicki Clabaugh, “We will have vintage and contemporary bed quilts, children’s quilts, and wall hangings, plus a variety of UFOs (unfinished objects) such as sets of blocks and quilts-in-progress. The sale will be from 10 am until 1 pm; come early for the best selection!”
WILDFLOWER HIKE: In connection with Thursday’s Audubon slideshow Randy and his wife Sharon Metcalf will lead a wildflower hike in the Cascades, probably near Mount Rainier, on Sunday, August 19th. The hike is limited to 10 people. Sign up by emailing Randy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
