Awhile back I finished this Colette Jasmine and never did a post on it. So here it is in all its glory, at Maquoketa Caves State Park. Caving has a magical quality to me and I have always loved this park.
The onset of spring always makes me want to tear my winter coat off and hide it in a closet. Weather in Iowa is still quite cold, today it was in the thirties. Spring is in the air though, I could see it all around me - in the icy pools of water spilling from the caves and in the first glimpses of green under the snow.
|Water bubbles up and travels through the cave, as icicles cling to the slowly warming rocks.|
|I rested my coat and purse on a small obliging tree.|
|Goofing around :)|
|I had fun mixing patterns on this shirt.|
The blouse is made out of quilting cotton. They tell you to avoid quilting cotton because it produces "crafty" looking clothes - but who with a heart and eyes could resist all the fun prints?? I could not resist - true this blouse isn't ready for a fancy event, but it is perfect for an exploratory hike through the woods.
