Quiet Time - Feb. 2017

Sending you a few quiet moments.

Giant cottonwoods line an old irrigation ditch, frozen over and covered with snow, 
on the northeastern plains of Colorado.

Have a beautiful day,

  1. It looks almost like a gravel road. Very pretty.
    I spotted irises blooming here. Too warm.

    1. The northeastern part of Colorado looks more like Kansas or Nebraska. So many simple beautiful scenes. Irises? Ours don't bloom til mid summer. Pat

    1. Thank you Lorraine! It does look like a road. There are irrigation ditches like this all over rural Colorado but are especially pretty with bare branches hanging low. . XO Pat

  6. Especially love that last photo! Love all the lines of the ditch and the fence line juxtaposed with the bare trees. Nice!

  8. We went out yesterday and the temp was almost 70 and I said, "what looks out of place today in this sunshine?" The trees were bare! It looked so weird in this off season weather, but it was a beautiful day! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

    1. Hi Sherry! Yes, it's been a crazy weather year, hasn't it? It was in the 60s here today and is supposed to be in the 70s Friday! No complaints from me; I'll take this beautiful weather any day over snow. Hugs, Pat
