Too often lately, we have not taken the time to stop to smell the sagebrush. Yes, wild roses grow in Colorado, but the more dominant odors are of pine and sage.
You don't need friends with a ranch to enjoy a quiet moment of reflection. My husband and I find it difficult to carve out those moments at home, as there are always chores waiting to be done.
This summer, I plan to make those moments happen. More sitting on the deck, writing, reading, and watching hummingbirds at the feeder. Treasuring the brief season, fresh vegetables from the garden, and homegrown flower bouquets.
Below is a slide show of our weekend outing. You can't smell the sage, but you can catch a glimpse of Colorado in spring.
