Inspired by colors

Went for a walk in the Metropark as part of my 3-Day training yesterday, and the wildflowers in some areas were just spectacular. Acres and acres of forest carpeted in emerald green leaves with quarter-sized bright yellow daisy-like flowers on top. And just around the bend, it was completely barren - not a leaf or petal to be seen. Around another bend, big clumps of lily of the valley foliage were up, and a few rogue daffodils peeked out here and there.

Now I want to make a "spring in the park" quilt in those greens and yellows ... it would look sort of like the Emerald City exploded all over the Yellow Brick Road, but at least I would know what it was.
