My Weather Bug is set for Wiggins and it reported a high of 106 degrees, but the temperature has dropped to 104. I decided to come in and cool off! (My Weather temperature is current for Fort Morgan.)
Last night Sarah told me to post as I now have internet service again! While we were gone or as soon as we got back there must have been a wind storm that blew the antennae out of alignment with the "tower". I really needed a vacation after our road trip because I can't even remember if it was windy/stormy when we got back!
Perhaps visiting this amazing garden at the motel in Salida will cool me off.
There were two deer and a huge bear in the garden.
California poppies were scattered in the gravel. One guest wondered what they were and thought they couldn't be poppies as they must look different/bigger in California. Anyway, that's what they're called around here.
I'm wishing this lupine was in my garden. I think it gets too hot here as this one was at a motel in the mountains. I was out early to take some pictures of the beautiful gardens and was fortunate to finish just before the gardener came to turn on the water. I think she and her husband are the owners because he was serving the breakfast while she was outside. Our room had hand painted walls and a texture done with stencils.
More cooling thoughts because it's HOT!! Walking in the river at the Great Sand Dunes was cooling. The ripples flow on and on.
So much fun to walk in and watch our footsteps disappear.
I am pretending that it's 80 degrees!
Now I just need a refill on the ice water to make it through the afternoon. Summer vacation is sweet. ♥♫
