Rain forest and snow

I worked on the rain forest part of the piece I have been working on for the last couple of weeks. I have a few more pieces to sew together into units before I start sewing the beach and rain forest into rows.

Last night I watched Stage 16 of the Giro d'Italia which went thru the Italian Alps. It was raining on the lower slopes, but as the riders climbed higher it was snowing. Those poor fellows looked miserable!

Look how deep the snow was near the top! See the street sign in the center between the riders? You can just see the top half sticking out of the snow.

Over the mountain and the sun was shinning!

Nairo Quintana from Columbia won the stage and the leader's jersey for a brilliant ride over those mountains!
