Make up my mind!

Well, we all know we need the moisture, so this is not really a complaint, but rather a "yep, this is Pueblo weather for ya" - and when you see it in print, you realize it's a bit crazy, so we had to take this snippet for the next few days' forecast for you. 

Are we going to heatstroke or freeze? Do we drag all our plants out to enjoy the sun or keep them in for protection? Snow shovel or rake? Hey, on the upside, will this help temper moth season with one last freeze?

Ghostly Fire

This is actually a photo of a historic photo. The faint ghosted images are live images at the old Fire station No. 3  Museum on Broadway ave. If you are milling about one afternoon and see their doors open, stop in for some neat historical stories and equipment. Some of which we will highlight here, as they make for very interesting pic.The actual photo itself was taken by a fire fighter more than 40 years ago. Trivia for you- of course the building was totaled, but can you place where in town this was?

We like this work of art, along the creative corridor, as it reminds us of a big happy pine cone. Though perhaps the artist may have had something else in mind when crafting these bronze looking disc objects into this easy on the eye creation.

Perks of the Season

Artichokes, Yea!
These lovelies can now be found at local grocery stores. We snapped these up at the south side King Soopers. Though, we are enjoying them so much as decor, that we keep forgetting to eat them!

Not Quite

Yep. Still snow. But like we are all saying. "we need the moisture!" As we stare out the window planning our gardens....

Who says you can't grow Meyer lemons in Pueblo? Well, like we said above, almost.....

Crystal Clear

The lake at City Park sits still, full to the brim and crystal clear.

Sign of Spring

With the freezing temps and wind and flurries, can you believe this butterfly was still out and about?

These Dragons were found perching in a curious spot. On U.S. 50 out in the Mesa in front of, and behind the Mi Ranchito restaurant. Very cool. Also, if you haven't tried their buffet, you need to head out there. It's very good, like a home cooked meal. On the Friday we were there, they had a magician roaming the crowd delighting the diners.

Turn Around

We didn't know it till we stopped for a quick rest on our hike up the Tower Trail, but this was the view behind us most of the way. Yes, the Tower Trail in the Pueblo Mountain Park in Beulah - Pueblo County!

Puppy Power

This little chocolate lab cutie is via the Bids for Kids Auction that will be held this weekend at the Pueblo Union Depot. She, along with DOC training and grooming sessions will be up for bid at the auction. She is so cute, she is making us think we could use a pup here at the studios!

Keep Your Eye on the Ball

 Sitting in the mid-town parking lot while running an especially boring errand, we spied this neat structures atop the Apria building, and tried to imagine them in our garden.

An Unexpected Sight

Runners, Hiker, Walkers, or Joggers got an unexpected sight if they were along the river trail at the Rock Canon Park area this past weekend. In the clearing of the parking lot they came up on Bishop Isern giving Mass to the participants of the Run with the Saints event. We spied an especially cute alter boy, who was deemed the "Keeper of the Hat".

Not Quite

Happy Bday T.P.

Mother Nature is not quite ready to do away with the frost, as we saw on Tuesday. The blizzard may not have been as strong around town as other places the temperatures still kept us huddled in doors!

On a Blustery Day

Like Pike's Peak views, we can't get enough of these either. On days like these, homemade bread seems to keep wandering in to our PPAD studios.

The Peak

We love to see the many different views all over the city of Pike's Peak. They are like all the smoke stacks around town- they make it feel like you're home.
