Not in Texas

 I was able to spend a little over a week in Colorado in June. It was great to get away from the South Texas humidity. I definitely took awhile to acclimate from sea level to the mountains. We had a great time sightseeing, hiking, taking ATV trails, cooking, sitting around the fire pit and playing dominoes. The above photo is from within an old mine. 
 We made a short climb to "Bear Caves". It was kind of scary for us flat land people!
 It was so windy up on this mountain top. The view was magnificent. 
We also found quite a bit of snow still in the mountains. We had to stop and play in it often. We almost never get snow in our neck of the woods. There were lots of snowball fights and cold hands.

Crimson Passion Vine

I love my traditional white and purple passion vine. I was excited to add a crimson version to my garden. 
It has been blooming prolifically lately. I planted it on the fence outside my kitchen window, so I get to enjoy it while I am washing dishes.

Reinvented Centerpiece

 This is my current centerpiece. I loved the battery operated candles, so I bought another one while they were still 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby. As you can see, I re-used many of the items from my Christmas centerpiece. As I said, I bought the third candle and the boxwood ball. I already had the other items and pulled the moss off a tree! Hmm, I wish I had "lit" the candles for the now photo!
We actually had a sunny day on Sunday. I took advantage! I cut back my asparagus and weeded around it. It is cold, windy and wet again today. 
Y'all come back,
