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.
A beautiful blue bird seen at Garden of the Gods. Can you name the species?
To answer Saturday’s question about what landmark we visited in Colorado … it was Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. Although the nice weather brought out crowds of people, I enjoyed the short hikes and the lack of that overwhelming feeling that comes with visiting a large National Park and barely having time to scratch the surface of it.
I hope you aren’t getting tired of seeing the fall leaves from our hike at Weston Bend State Park this weekend. They may all have the same brilliant colors, but each photo is so different I just couldn’t narrow them down. Just a couple more days, I promise. And if you missed the other posts, here they are.
Here is another photo from the gorgeous Weston Bend State Park. For more info about the hike & a couple more photos, see yesterday’s blog post.
