What a fun time to go out into the yard, right after a nice rain shower. We have had a lot of rain this spring, which is a little unusual for Northern Colorado. I’am not complaining, just enjoying. The little Columbine sits just under the eve of our upper deck so didn’t get rained on.

I have been undressed,

Thought, I would care less.

~

I am sad, a little distressed,

Winter winds will trespass.

~

Let me not digress,

Looking forward to my new dress.

Spring will bring me happiness,

My blooms with be the best.

I took these photos, in my yard, the day before we left Colorado at the end of October.

We are currently at Tyler State Park near Tyler, Texas. We plan to leave in the morning heading to Lake Bistineau State Park near Shreveport, LA.

I am behind in blogging and hope to catch up, in a few days, sharing all our experiences since leaving Ray Roberts State Park. All is great! Back in a day or two!

Poetry:~Leaves fall, life surrenders, motion slows~

Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided
Dark-eyed Juncos need shelter

In the distance, to the West, 

Blue skies highlight icy crystals, 

Glistening on mountain peaks;

Leaves fall, life surrenders, motion slows.

 

Outside my window, not quite winter,

Dramatic changes revealed,

Pleasing aspects of autumn gone;

Leaves fall, life surrenders, motion slows.

 

From the mountain, Sparrows seek food,

Dark-eyed Juncos, need shelter,

Western Scrub Jay, caches peanuts;

Leaves fall, life surrenders, motion slows.

 

In the distance, to the West,

Leaves fall, life surrenders, motion slows.

White-crowned Sparrows and Dark-eyed Juncos showed up, at my house, a couple of days ago – winter is on its way!

This morning, I took a tour of my yard to see what was still blooming.To my surprise some of my flowers are still doing well. We were slated for snow on Friday, which thankfully stayed north of us. Sorry Wyoming! Our overnight temperatures have been cold; last night’s, 32!

A reprieve, from icy destruction,

My lovely flowers, keep blooming,

To charm all, with their beauty.
