Orchids at Botanic Gardens

These photos of Orchids were taken at Denver Botanic Gardens. I went to the Gardens on Tuesday to check out their orchid showcase and to get a little shooting in. Once hubby and my friend have their surgeries next week I will be sticking close to home and probably won’t get out much. Winter is a really quiet time for the Gardens. Obviously, not much is blooming in Denver right now and the ponds are frozen! But the greenhouses are perfectly warm and in bloom.

Around the backyard

pink roses

Around the backyard there are roses growing where they shouldn’t.

Around the backyard there is dying grass where our two new dogs are peeing and destroying the grass.

Around the backyard there is dog poop that needs to be picked up, especially in the sand pit.

Around the backyard there is evidence that children live here…squirt guns laid to rest, sand buckets with sand still inside, and small shoes that have been left outside over night once again.

Around the backyard there is a tire swing in its third summer.

Around the backyard there is a pile of fallen cottonwood branches that were toss during the last wind storm.

Around the backyard is a black lab barking, looking for someone to throw the ball.

Around the backyard there is a five-year-old filling a bucket with water to play in the sand pit.

Around the backyard my Missouri Primrose is in bloom.

Around the backyard the daylilies have buds. It will be a few more weeks before they show their glory.

Around the backyard, near Bailey’s grave, the chives are blooming and the bees are buzzing.

Around the backyard Thor has just brought me a stick to throw.

Around the backyard there are wild strawberries that have never bared fruit and clematis that surprises me every year when it blooms.

Reminding Myself to Breathe.

Sometimes I will catch myself holding my breath. I will be thinking about something heavy or someone who is now gone. And I notice it.

I am holding my breath.

Then, I have to remind myself to breathe.

Spring 2011

Just Breathe…
