Wildflower Waltz is a lovely key-changing waltz.  The A part is in the key of C, while the B part is in the key of F.  There is only one double-stop in the whole tune, so I have not prepared separate full and melody-only transcriptions.  That lone double-stop is actually comprises the very last note, and is somewhat difficult: a high C on the first string and an E on the second string.  Other than that, the only challenge should be the timing.  There is a good bit of broken rhythm and many grace notes, as well as sixteenth notes and even fast triplets over sixteenth notes.  Kessinger also used a lot of vibrato, which is denoted in the transcription by a squiggly line to the left of notes to be played vibrato.
