Need to make more mistakes

Last of the season

Last of the season

“If you’re not making mistakes, you might as well hang the camera up.” Joe McNally

Probably one the last flowers we will see this year as the weather changes and fall approaches. Mornings are cooler as we had 43 degrees at 6:30 am. The temperature swing can be large this time of the year as we are expecting a high of 83 degrees this afternoon. Jacket in the morning and short sleeves by afternoon. Probably need to make more mistakes.

Out of Town

Song of Sharon

Song of Sharon

Nancy has given my good friend Don a 24 hour pass so he and I are leaving in an hour to an area in the mountains call Red Feather Lakes. We will spend the night at his cabin which is located along the shore of one of the seven lakes that make up the Red Feather Lakes area. We will get in some hiking, a little laughter while making bodily orifice sounds and solve a few of the world’s problems. A guy thing.  🙂

“Courage is not only the willingness to face uncertainty but to embrace it, to collaborate with it.” David duChemin 

Another image taken at the CSU Experimental Gardens. We have had overcast skies and a lite rain for the past few days. This brings cooler temperatureS and higher humidity, so this morning I’m wearing a jacket. Forecast is for the same weather the next four days.

A Day in the Gardens

“I don’t believe in an outside agent that creates the world, then walks away. But I feel very strongly there is an intelligence at work in every flower, in every blade of grass, in every cell of my body. And it is that intelligence that, I wouldn’t say created the universe. It is creating the universe. It’s an ongoing process.” Eckhart Tolle
