Ivy'd Arches

We are noticing vines everywhere, as we are looking for fast growing one for our yard. This one seemed to pop up in 2 days. though growing randomly in the State Fairgrounds, its likely to be a weed of some sort. A nice looking weed at that.

In Flight

We snapped this photo while watching a group of kids enjoying a beautiful spring day while learning about wind.

A Sun Bleached Peek

We didn't expect to be lucky enough to be invited in, but for privacy reasons we'll still distort this image a bit. If you have been around town and seen these familiar shapes, then you know whose studio we were in. And let me tell you, we could have stayed all day being filled with inspiration.

Flower Spot

We thought this was a neat idea for a flower planter. Though, not as big as this one outside the Agriculture Building.

The Giddy Fig

This tiny Italian Everbearing Fig perches on a branch awaiting a sunbath. We figure Pueblo's hot, dry summers would be ideal to experiment with growing a fig tree.
Nope, we aren't in Italy, or even California.  This little guy is growing right here in good ol' Pueblo, CO. And like our lemons, we are watching it like a hawk, waiting for the the perfect time to pluck and enjoy.

May in Pueblo

A group of local 2nd graders fidget while awaiting their turn to take a photo with Bishop Isern
Here in Pueblo, May seems to be a month long of celebrations. You can see them just driving through town - the parks are full on beautiful days. We have Mother's Day, First Communions, College Graduations, Confirmations, High School Graduations, even 8th Grade Graduations now, the End of School parties, and then we throw in a few just for fun like the Wild West Festival and Cino de Mayo parades. Seems we like to celebrate huh?

Do you ever...

...have a special pancake breakfast on a regular day?
Usually you can only find cinnamon chips around the holidays, but we noticed the south side King Soopers was still carrying them, and we couldn't resist

Just Right

Even the Bessmer Ditch can be pretty when seen through the right eye. We snapped this serene setting off Berkley Ave.

Ship Wrecked

There aren't many who do not recognize this ship. Most of us grew up watching monkeys paly on it during outings to the Pueblo Zoo.

Snowballs in May

The flower kind that is. These delightful fluffy flowers were seen on McClelland Ave.

Tower at the End of the Trail

A few weeks back we posted an image of the view along Tower Trail in Beulah, but we didn't show you what you get play in if you make it to the end of the trail. Bring water and snacks and you can have break at the top of the tower before heading back.

An Authentic Chihuly?

Not quite. Just a replica- made out of candy. Our ode to Dale Chihuly.

Ever been to the Clinton Museum in Little Rock, or to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center?
Or seen his work in Seattle? He's the artist who creates those huge, wonderfully, curious blown glass chandeliers. They look as if they are found underseas? 
Well, once you see them, you instantly recognize his work when you see it again.

Pouring and molding this candy bowl made us think of those creations while we were just setting out to make homemade suckers - and as always, we couldn't resist playing.


These homemade suckers look almost too pretty to eat!

Forecast for Today....

Sunny smiles. Or  all smiles, as this group of 2nd graders got to tour the local KOAA tv station and see themselves right smack in the middle of the weather report.

Happy May Day

Though this photo, taken today, looks more like a Christmas card. I know our yards and gardens will be singing this weekend with all the moisture and sun we are about to get.
