Colorado in the Fall

A couple of weeks ago hubby and I went to one of our favorite vacation places, Colorado. We were hoping we weren't too late to see some fall color but we sure didn't plan on seeing so much snow. The morning we got to Colorado, the Eisenhower tunnel was closed because of heavy snow. Thankfully snow this early in Colorado melts off fast. We had a beautiful view of Fall and Winter on our way to Estes Park. Had a great time but glad to be home where I have a fireplace. It was a bit chilly in the mountains

The mountains are so awe inspiring.

Have a  relaxing day,

Starling Migration in my backyard.

Unbelievable. We have lived here for over 50 years and we have never witnessed a Starling migration . There must be thousands of them. They are everywhere. The starlings seem to especially love the water tower that is almost in our backyard. Amazing. And starlings are very verbal. They didn't stay very long. And boy are we glad. Sure wouldn't want them at our bird feeders.

"Did you know both males and females can mimic human speech. (Some people keep   starlings as pets." Interesting. you can read more here:

Have a good weekend. Rose
