  1. AA Milne had it right. I plant these weeds in my cottage garden. They are gorgeous
    poppies, columbine, trilliums, trout lily I have them all in my garden. Unlike most of my neighbors I love dandelions. Those cheerful yellow flowers make me smile.

  2. Karen – I have a question regarding the PDF pattern offerings. It is about SIZE: the patterns download to my Mac, then I print them and take somewhere to enlarge… is that all there is to it ??? The PDF size is the standard 8.5 x 11 ???

  3. Reblogged this on Crooked House Rugs and commented:
    I just love Karen Kahle’s mats and blog – her colours and her unique style make every visit an occasion. The quote here is a great one and reminds me of one of my favourites – “The earth laughs in flowers” by Ralph Waldo Emerson. It makes me smile, so expressive and unexpected. Milne had an excellent point, too – taking time to enjoy weeds and wildflowers is time well spent.
