I'm heading out of town~again~But, this time, I am going to meet our son in Colorado where he and his dad, the infamous Mr I (Mr I Tear Down This Hedge) will be participating in an event with biking, an obstacle course and crawling through a mud pit.
I'm so glad it's them and not me!
I'll be on the sidelines snapping photos. Later we'll head up to the Estes Park neighborhood<-live web cam. It's been decades since we visited this fantastically beautiful part of the country with its breath taking scenery. I love the Rockies and the scenic drives with its knee shaking precipices. I am more excited than you can imagine after weeks of 100+ heat index temperatures to be heading to the mountains and evening temperatures below 60F. What a treat. We'll also bee in Fort Collins to visit friends, public gardens and if we can arrange it a visit to fellow blogger Kathleen (Kasey's Korner) who lives nearby. Kathleen's blog is a delight and her artistry shines through in every photo.
My younger sister, Terry, volunteered house sit while we're gone. Isn't she a doll. It's easier to leave knowing that she will be here to watch over Coal and keep those containers watered. I wonder how she'll feel about Zen Watering after a week of standing out there in the heat.
See you all soon my friend,
Ahhhh, Gail, bee safe and have fun. Can't wait to hear of your adventure with another blogger.ReplyDelete
Safe travels and have fun!!!ReplyDelete
Safe travels Gail. We're going to need to start calling you The Wanderer.~~DeeReplyDelete
Oh I know you'll have a wonderful time - spent some time in the Durango area one summer - gorgeous, and I agree on the knee shaking drives - worth the fear though, I think :)ReplyDelete
I love Colorado, especially the Estes Park area. You deserve some cool temperatures and a bit of fun.ReplyDelete
You lucky duck, getting to go to one of my favorite places on this earth. Ilove the mountains and this part of the Rockies is grand. Have a great time. I can't wait to see all the photos of the inspirational gardens and scenery.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful trip Gail - oh to visit the Rockies - thats a dream of mine!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful time, Gail! Nothing like spending time with family, and a chance to meet up with Kathleen sounds like so much fun. I envy you the beautiful scenery and cooler temperatures...but I'd pass on the mud pit:)ReplyDelete
The bumblebee hanging from the end of the blossom is just bee-lightful!
Lovely images of our bee friends Gail.....ReplyDelete
Enjoy the cooler temperatures and the wonderful scenery......safe travelling.
Lovely to have younger sister taking care of things......
Dear Gail, what a fun adventure this sounds to be, and hooray for sister Terry to take care of things back home for you. She deserves a special gift! The bee photos are superb, and the one of the boys is priceless. Say Hi to Kathleen for me if you get to visit. :-)ReplyDelete
Have fun in Colorado!ReplyDelete
I'll BEE thinking of you in awesome Colorado and wishing you a BEE-utiful vacation with Mr I and your son. Safe journey, dear Gail, and don't forget your camera ... ah ... like you would :)ReplyDelete
Good bye my dear friends~See you soon, gailReplyDelete

happy summer days.
Oh, I am so envious. I've never visited Colorado. Have the most fabulous time - you deserve it. xoxoReplyDelete
May the boys have a wonderful time & may you soak up some of that wonderful mountain air & sunshine - always think the colours are brighter....wonder if they really are. Just think of the wildflower shots you'll get - have a blast!ReplyDelete
Hi Gail, Oooh... I hope you're taking lots of photos. Yeah, the literal mudslinging doesn't sound like my cup o' tea either. Much more fun to be on the sidelines with the camera.ReplyDelete
Don't let those knees shake too much. We want you back in one piece. Have fun dear friend.
Have a great time! Estes Park is so lovely this time of year.ReplyDelete
They will have so much fun and you too, with the blackmail photos. Your sister is a doll alright, it's so hard to find good gardening help, lol.ReplyDelete
I'm so jealous! Summer is the best time in the high country and Fort Collins!ReplyDelete
First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I'd like toReplyDelete
ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out
there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10
to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!
