261: Colorado dreaming


Today and tomorrow are going to be full of family and fun.  M and I are going to be visiting with our granddaughters, our oldest son, and his wife.  I decided to go ahead and schedule a post just in case I don’t find time to do one tonight.

Unknown (to me) flower

The photos are from our Colorado trip last summer.  Someday I will have sorted through them all and I’ll have to come up with something new to fall back on for these scheduled posts.

I don't know what these are either, but they're pretty.

It’s a little sticky here in the Bogs today, but the temperature isn’t too bad.  Clouds moved in and out all morning, threatening rain, but the rain hadn’t appeared as of this writing (noon).  I went outside this morning to meet my commitment, doing a few chores and checking out some of the trees and flowers.  An interesting thing of note:  I was looking back at some posts from last spring and found that the tiger lilies had bloomed on June 10th (2010).  Yesterday afternoon (June 10th), the tiger lilies bloomed.


I’ve also discovered what the mystery fruit tree happens to be.  You’ll have to wait until tomorrow or Monday to find out.  😉

  1. The fawn is absolutely gorgeous! I can’t believe they actually roam in the wild over there. Have a wonderful time with your family, I know you will! And take lots of photos. 🙂

    Great shot of the fawn!

  3. Kel says:

    kangaroos and koalas seem quite boring and commonplace compared to a fawn
    i wonder is that flower some kind of echinacae – or in the same family?

    The last picture is of Mexican blanket flower or Gallardia, I believe. Beautiful pics as always!

  5. Ah–that fawn is darling! What a great photo! Have a great trip, Robin!

    Have fun with the family Robin, our weather here has changed for the worse, raining heavily, I wonder if Mother Nature heard the reports of a drought? 😉 xPenx

  7. That unknown flower look very cool… but I have to admit nearly all flowers fall in to the “unknown” category to me… but not all of them look quite as cool as yours… As for your fawn… 😀

  8. That fawn is so adorable!
    My daughter has a wildflower poster in her room, and both flowers are on it. The first one is a Mexican Hat, and the second one is called Indian Blanket.
