A Pic A Day

It has come to my attention that people are posting a picture every day in May. I’m late to the party. Here are three pictures to catch me up.

Cranes in the Golden Triangle on Friday night. The picture was taken as I was leaving Walker Fine Art. It’s foggy because it was snowing

Flower save from death by snow.

Spring In The Garden

The grape hyacinths in the garden outside my bedroom are in full bloom. There’s a glass and metal Dimitri Rudenko sculpture on the left. I think the black fence really helps make the garden pop.

The Colour Of Spring

The Colour Of Spring was Talk Talk’s third album. Released in 1985, it was a departure from the group’s early synthesized pop music. To this day, the album remains one of my favorites.

Here are a few pics of the colour of spring in my garden:

Saved From An Icy Death

I cut these tulips yesterday afternoon. I saved them from any icy death. Their comrades are now buried under many inches of snow. I gave a big bouquet of tulips to Tom and Sheila. I also have a bunch of grape hyacinths in vase. I’ll get to see who survived on Monday when the temperature rises to the high forties.

After The Blizzard

What a storm! The airport closed. Many highways were closed. A thousand cars were stranded on I-25 near Monument Hill, between Denver and Colorado Springs.
The combination of white snow and a black fence makes this photo look like it’s black and white.
Another round of snow arrives on Friday night.

Paddy’s deal to buy the hair salon fell apart but he has a new shiny object in his vision. He wants to buy a Bentley Continental GT. The husband of a client works at the local Bentley dealership. Paddy has been offered a “special” deal. Why do I feel this is going to be a complete cluster fuck?

In other news, Paddy has a client who is an IT headhunter. Paddy is going to facilitate introductions. Who know where this could lead. I’m guessing Paddy doesn’t want to been seen driving around in a Bentley with an unemployed friend.

Here’s a picture of a bee on a crocus in my yard which is completely unrelated to rest of this post. It seems a little early for the bees to be out. I’m not an entomologist so I could be wrong.
This part of the lawn is buffalo grass, which is a xeriscape grass that greens up late in the spring.

Sun To Snow

I mowed the yard on Sunday afternoon for the first time this year. The grass had greened up and had grown long enough to mow, in Denver, in February. I also have chives in the herb garden that survived the winter. My area is usually a hard frost zone. Then it snowed last night. Of course, there’s no such thing as global warming.
