I got my header photo over-night…setting there in my email waiting for me to sit down and open my computer. Elaine, from the Black Forest in Colorado, had a stunning rainbow appear close to her home. I just had to share it with each of you!
My Colorado Columbine are blooming. Although, it is illegal to remove plants from the wild, Colorado Columbine are readily available at the nurseries. This plant is about two years old and very colorful. I always think of my wonderful maternal Grandfather (he lived just down the orchard from us) who had two flowers that he adored, the Colorado Columbine and a Yellow Rose bush. You see he grew up in Texas...the Yellow Rose of Texas (a traditional American Folk song) and would sing it to us.
And NOW……TA DA!
A Rufus hummingbird, by the way!
YAY! I think I did it! A neat Hummingbird photo!
And JOY of ALL JOYS the Corn IS UP!
Just in time, because another winter-like storm is due in here tonight. The clouds swarmed in from the west, bringing with them a colder day. The weather people say snow and heavy rain possible —again. Terry is out leveling the pinto bean field even as I sit here writing to you. Time is a huge factor. If he can get the field leveled and the big ditches made for that field, before the weather settles in he will be happy camper.
Anyway, yesterday was just the happiest of days; I just had to share with you!
