We finally got some measurable snow! We need the moisture and it is pretty to look at – just not to shovel.

thinking of spring

Thinking of Spring! Already have received about 6 seed catalogues, so even businesses are thinking of Spring! A wildflower from the mountains.

on winter solstice day

On winter solstice day – adding some light! From the Blossoms of Light show at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Blue in the dark is very intense and beautiful – it was all a wonderland to behold!

holiday greetings

Christmas just a week away and the year end coming too. Whew – where did the year go. We are having a dry winter again down here, the ski areas are doing OK. But you know it’s bad when you are watering in December! Colorful Bamboo from Denver Botanic Gardens.


An interesting plant, found it at the Denver Botanic Gardens this past summer. Hope to get down to see their Blossoms of light display before December is over.

happy thanksgiving

On this cold overcast day a banana plant from the Denver Botanic Gardens Conservatory. It’s one of the food groups for this Thanksgiving Day?! Enjoy Family!


Called this my snowflake cloud because it’s a 6 pointed star. We got a good snow yesterday with lots of cloud cover. Today we have sunshine and melting snow – fortunately. I’ve been looking up at the clouds a lot lately, it is always good to look up.

voting day

A cold wind is blowing here today and in the picture of the apache plum seed head. I look at my work for images appropriate to be turned into a Black and White image, this was my selection for this months competition and I got a 1st place!!
