On our trip to Rocky Mountain National Park a few weeks ago, we saw an amazing number of wildlife. The elk were everywhere, and the chipmunks were so cute and tame! I’ve wanted to see a moose for some time now, so when we ran into a group of pedestrians with cameras alongside the road, I was ecstatic to see a moose grazing in a field. We encountered a few mule deer, a snowshoe hare, and squirrels, too.
We visited Rocky Mountain National Park a few weeks ago, but I just finished editing photos today. I can’t fit my favorites into one blog post, so I’m splitting it into three. I’ve skied in Colorado many times, but this is the first time in my adult life that I’ve visited in the summer. I was blown away by how pretty it is. This is a place I could never tire of.
This lily is even more beautiful than the first one that bloomed in my yard!
I planted a few lily bulbs last year, and they did ok at best. This year they grew to about four feet tall, and their blossoms are probably eight inches around. They’re huge…and gorgeous!
Here are a couple of pretty flowers from my garden. The first was a Mother’s Day gift, the second was a rose-bush planted before we moved in.
We like to go to Powell Gardens, just east of Kansas City, about once a year. They have the most beautiful seasonal gardens around.
