clusters and clusters of these sweet,
beautiful blossoms have created
a bower of goodness over our humble garden
area outside our door
fuchsia and white with tiny splashes of yellow
the bees are humming and buzzing about madly
trying to get to each blossom
it's the musical sound of nature filling the air
and the aroma is SO sweet
don't you just love the
the wonder of it all and just
stopping now and then to take it all in?
it reminds me of a song I sing..
"I've been watching the sunrise,
I've been listening to the rain.
I've been taking my sweet time and
letting the blue skies carry me away."
I love this time of year
as the scents and sounds of nature surround us
here at the foot of Flat Top mountain..
as harsh as it is sometimes,
I still love being here
anthers and anthers of sunshiny yellow!
it's easy to see why the bees
are buzzing about so madly
I hope this finds you well
what have you been doing?
this morning I was busy planting lilies and dividing
some hens and chicks
it was a deliciously cool 40 degrees
I was thankful for the warm fire in the stove when I came in!
I've also been
working on the rock pathway and buying some lovely
star lanterns for the gypsy camp
you can see them here
(trying desperately to grow some green!)
now that I've finished learning Rocky Mountain High
on the guitar, I'm enjoying playing it often
do you enjoy playing music?
here are some blue bird photos that I thought
you might enjoy
I was so excited to be able to capture the
Mountain Bluebird and the Western Bluebird
in the same photo!
(these beauties are one of the reasons that
I love living in the mountains)

I hope that you enjoyed your visit!
thank you ever so much for stopping in
I hope that your day is a joyous one
I'll be sipping some tea, taking a walk
and working on a project
Blessings to you all
