Today my mother would have been 84. She loved my yard and would have been content to sit by the pond with me for hours, except for the bees…
Yesterday Ruth and I drove up on Grand Mesa, from the Colbran road off 133 up and across west to Overland Reservoir, then back down Stevens Gulch Road to Paonia. What a treat the colors were, despite the pervasive haze from fires far to the west.
Where we picnicked.
A half-day’s drive to enjoy all this, but still our back yard. Too grateful for words.
