And the Winner Is ---
I'm still working on my entry in the flower category of the WIN photo contest, but first, let me tell you what else we've been doing. We had a birthday party for someone just about every day! This is Brad's 50th B-day - he's the baby of the group.
The next day we went to the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens - a great chance to get some good flower pictures. The Gardens combines art and plants in many of the exhibits.
AND they have lots and lots of rusty stuff!
I have been around Cottonwood trees for a while, but I never realized the cotton puffs were so huge!
Near the entrance was this gorgeous Smoke Bush.
And outside, they also had a lily pond.
They had a rainforest indoors.
This plant reminded me of the plant I saw in the South Pacific last year.
But I decided to enter this photo from our hike the other day. And it won! I now have a Russell Stove box of chocolates!
We've now moved up the hill to El Jebel, off I-70 on the road to Aspen. Hopefully, it will be cooler....
