At The Ringling - "Walk and Talk"

Pin It
Last weekend we attended our first class here in Florida. 
At The Ringling, HERE is their site

It was a "Walk and Talk" about the tree's of Florida, their planting and care. 
First class room time and then the walk with the Ringling's Landscape Superintendent, Kevin and Erin from the UF/IFAS Extension of Sarasota County.
Since we purchased my Mom's place we need to do a bit of landscaping. The class has made me want to take the Master Gardener's classes even more.

I'm getting through a pile of reading and found 
this wonderful article in 


The Magazine Antiques - their site HERE

Article By Jean M.Burks
Shelburne Memorial Building New York

This quilt is one from the collection made by Florence Peto 1881-1970
Named “Calico Garden”  the quilt was purchased for the museum in 1952 and in 1999 was named one of 
“The twentieth century’s Best American Quilts” 

If you break down this quilt, it's 9-patch squares set on point, off square are simple applique flowers, border's are squares set on point with corner applique.
