Walked to where I sit sometimes during hunting season. The moss on the rock was slippery and I fell a couple times. This is a swampy area I watch.

I had a hawk fly nearby but I wasn't fast enough with the camera.

On the way out I saw this guy sunning himself.

Really nice pics, again, Cindy. Are temps in that area warming a little? Global Warming hasn't really happened here in Colorado yet <gg>. The mountains got a foot of new snow the other day and we had about an inch here in the Denver 'burbs.

Every snow pack reporting station in Colorado reports well over 100% "normal" snow pack. Most well over 130%. We'll send a lot of water into Lake Mead this spring and we're all praying for a slow melt to avoid flooding.

Thanks for the stream of enjoyable photos.

Thank you Ken. I'm very much an amateur but I enjoy taking them and learning.

It was in the 60's today. Nice enough to walk around without a coat. The weekend we did the roof we had high 70's. I believe it broke a record one of those days.

This past Tuesday it snowed but it didn't stay.

This time of the year the weather can swing a lot both ways.

I saw on the news about the snow out there, glad we didn't that much here! :)

Hi grandpa,

I'm glad you enjoy the pictures.

We were up to camp yesterday with our blue berry picking friends from Pennsylvania. Here's a picture of our phlox beside the boathouse.

The bugs weren't bad because it was very windy.

Here are a couple pictures of Trilliums, a wild flower commonly seen in the woods locally .





We used to see Lady Slippers when I was younger, but I haven't seen one in a long time. They are a treat to spot, not very common. In some states, they're illegal to pick.

Cindy, thanks! The Phlox is wonderful. Does it attract bees?

Your picture reminded me of the trillium we have in our yard. It's been around as long as we've lived here (32 yrs last April). Its flower has faded, but it is still a beautiful plant. We have one other trillium on the property that isn't nearly as impressive.
