Yesterday was nothing but big blue sky’s and gentle breezes waltzing though the boughs of flowering trees. Fistfuls of green were breaking out left and right and pinky white blossoms tumbled off the lower trees, creating a fairy-like snow! Now I am beginning to love the opening feeling that spring evokes. Spring takes it’s own time, like a waltz. Each step is beautiful in it’s own place and the melody twists around the motion of the dance, slowly, but elegantly leading it. I found that if you take the time to meet each second and open yourself to the opportunities that life presents you, we can all embody the beauty of spring.
I recently had the pleasure of looking outside my window into an ocean of color with black tree branches stenciled up against it. It started at the crevasse with a deep amethyst hugh smudging the coppery pink clouds above it. It was truly a gorgeous sunset, so breathtaking that I ran out the door in my pajamas, with bare feet and a camera in hand to the end of my road to get these shots! I hope you all are receiving lovely spring weather and get to look out your window and see a a view as spectacular as the one I just saw!
On a recent trip to Colorado, I had the pleasure of visiting one of the best outdoor theaters anyone could ask for. Red Rocks is geologically beautiful with massive natural formations of clay colored rock, and has hosted historic bands such as U2 and The Beatles! During the summer it plays its role as an amazing venue to go see a concert at, but during the spring, athletes are running up, down, right and left along the benches that create a steep semi circle around the stage, perfect for training on! Spring is a great time to motivate yourself to go and get active! Since spring isn’t blistering hot or down right freezing, there’s no excuse not to go outside and get some exercise and enjoy nature! I was so impressed to see the vast range of ages working hard to either run or do any other form of exercise, and pushing through the sweaty heat that had been hanging over Colorado for that previous week. Hope you enjoy these pictures and get motivated to get out and do some exercise!
I’ve recently come back from a weekend trip to Vermont to collect some data for a school science project I’m working on. Our car trip was quite stunning actually! It was all blue sky’s with large clouds draping over a panorama of azure mountains. Even though Vermont is called “The Green Mountain State”, it only portrays its name in summer. The mountains are drenched in reds and oranges during the fall, and painted blue and white during the winter and early spring. Whatever the season though, Vermont always manages to take your breath away. I have been going up to VT for many years, and it’s like home when I’m up there. Even the car rides have become comforting with our annual stops to the Grafton Village Cheese store, where we stock up on jams, chocolate, simply heavenly bread and some pretty gosh darn amazing cheese! Besides the amazing food up there, what I also love is how you can just stand in the middle of a field and only hear the snow falling…it’s quite magical! Well besides tramping out into the woods for 3 hours to collect data, I couldn’t resist taking about 700 photos in the 24 hours I was there, so I have selected some of my favorites to post! ( The snow shots at the end remind me of pointillism paintings!)
1.8 acres with a fully renovated dog house for $54,900…Any takers?
