We Call It Fall

Morning Frost

Morning Frost

This is the time of year when temperatures swing from near freezing in the morning then rise by mid-afternoon to 75 and short sleeves. We scrap frost off windshields at 6:30 am then have doors open by noon. We call it fall.

This pat weekend was lovely. Afternoon temperatures reaching the mid 60’s and nighttime temperatures down to freezing. The cold nights and humidity brought frost to everything in the morning. Saturday morning included some fog where I could not see across the pond. Continue reading »

Yes, Bluer is a Word

Blue Skies over the CSU Soccer Practice Field

Blue Skies over the CSU Soccer Practice Field

I love blue skies! So, after getting off the bus and walking to Morgan Library on Colorado State University campus I had to smile and point my camera to the northern skies. I find this time of the year to be a favorite. We begin to have cooler temperatures making for a better night of sleep and refreshing mornings. And, I think the blue skies are bluer! πŸ™‚

Storm Clouds Along the Colorado Front Range

Storm Clouds Along the Colorado Front Range

We have had cloudy and cooler weather for the past few days, seeing less of our Colorado sunshine. This past Saturday was a day for lovely clouds and not just a gray sky. I have taken several images from this location and always include the trees.

Sunset

Sunset

Spring like weather is here. But, this is Colorado so snow can still make an appearance. Buds and blossoms are everywhere. Tulips are making their appearance on campus. Robins and chickadees are singing each morning, making the day start off on the right foot. And, at the end of this day will be a sunset, reminding me how good life is. Hope you have a great day!

Here is another image from my walk at the Arapaho Bend Nature Area this past weekend. Hope everyone is enjoying their leftover candy from Halloween Night. Strange how we always buy too much of it. πŸ™‚
