Snow on the Peak!

This was the view today as I drove down Woodmen to go to work.....plenty of snow up on Pike's Peak. Today is our official last potential frost date. It did snow here once in June - hard to believe! I stopped at the Home Depot and loaded up on foxgloves and perennials to work in my yard. I am very excited to see the lilies my daughter-in-law gave me all coming up nicely along with my delphiniums and lupines!

What a beautiful view. My foxgloves are just now setting bloom buds, they are one of my favorite floweres, and they grow wild here.
Have a great day. TTFN

I'm just surprised, being from southern California, that it is still snowing anywhere LOL. It looks pretty!

All the best,

Allison,

Yesterday I went to the local nursery and loaded up on Foxgloves, Lupine, Columbine, and some really pretty annuals. I spent all day yesterday and today outside working in the garden.

I just threw down my Cleome, Lupine, Purple Coneflower and Sweet Pea seeds. I am hoping for a better garden display this year. Last summer was terrible. DH and I are working really hard to bring a new look to the yard. Can't wait.
