This post is coming to you from a cottage in a garden in an apple orchard in Durango, Colorado.
In fact, the door is open. Come on in.
It’s around 8am and the sun is shining, although it is a bit chilly.
There is a window seat in this cottage and this is how the sun is coming in through the trees and window shades . . .
I love the difference in color in the two windows.
Yesterday was an internet impossible day because the wi-fi here was under the weather, and when I drove into town, I forgot all about the computer and headed for the nurseries.
We lost our best nursery in Santa Fe a couple years ago, so I now make a yearly pilgrimage to Durango to get my bedding plants, and see my sister friend, Valerie, of course. There is a new nursery here that knocked my socks off, and Val’s. We spent most of the afternoon there. I am going back and will try to get some photos.
My favorite flower is the Tuberous Begonia. Yes, I have a lot of favorite flowers, but that’s ok. There’s no maximum. Anyway, I literally could not breathe because this nursery had the biggest and most beautiful selection of Tuberous Begonia I have ever seen. Some of them now belong to me (grin).
The rest of this post is going to be photos, because I am trying not to think about anything but what is in the moment. All my decisions can wait til later.
Here is the view straight out from the porch . . .
and if you turn to the right . . .
Betsy’s cottage is on the other side of that footbridge.
And if you turn to the left . . .
Ponds and streams are all over the property. That’s the main house where there are B&B rooms instead of cottages.
And if I just stay on my porch . . .
I could sit in a rocking chair and sketch in my journal – hmmm.
Yes – I think I will do that.
