Balloon Rodeo

Decided to take a new direction for a bit as the cold weather slowed all the flowers.  The Steamboat Balloon rodeo two years ago, allowed ample opportunity for taking pictures.  There was a touch and go event, where the balloon maneuvers over a small body of water, the balloon basket touches the surface and immediately lifts into the air.  The center has reflections of the balloon in the water.

new web site

Pansies survive the snow and cold!  They are my favorite Spring flower.  I am in the process of starting up a new web site, that will incorporate my blog into the site.  You can find the site at 
It is a work in progress, so will be working out the kinks and getting used to the new upload requirements, bear with me.  I will post to both sites for a while.

Violet violet

The color purple, I like it. My fragrant violets are up and perfuming the air, you have to bend over to smell and to look at them, they are just tiny flowers.  The deeper color is from the shadowed throat of the flower. Even our latest snow and cold snap didn't affect these little flowers.
