Well it is Spring but they are predicting rain and possible snow starting Wednesday night and into Friday. We will take the moisture but not to excited about the cold temperatures. Thought I would post and image of one of Colorado’s Columbines before the cold gets it.
The Rocky Mountain Columbine Columbines bloom in pastel shades of blue, violet, red, yellow and white. There are 70 species of columbines in the world and about 1/3 are native to North America. Colorado specifies the white and lavender Rocky Mt. Columbine which has blue-violet petals and spurs, a white cup and yellow center. Blue is a symbol of the sky, white represents snow, and yellow symbolizes Colorado’s gold mining history. It was designated the official state flower of Colorado in 1899 after winning the vote of Colorado’s school children. I was way too young to vote but I would have voted for it. 🙂
“I don’t let go of my thoughts, I meet them with understanding, then they let go of me.” Byron Katie
“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.” Marianne Williamson
“Outdoors we are confronted everywhere with wonders; we see that the miraculous is not extraordinary but the common mode of existence.” Wendell Barry
I hope your week is filled with wonder, love, peace, happiness and signs of Spring.!
I noticed this plant with delicate small flowers on my walk across campus. The white stood out among the dark shadows so I composed and pressed the shutter. Once I had this image on the computer I started to really notice the details of the small flowers. The are amazing and wish I knew what there are.
