"Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius." -- Pietro Aretino
Several Sundays ago Dennis and I took a drive from Allenspark to Lyons along the St. Vrain River. This route took us through Raymond, which is called a town but is really just a small roadside country store and several miles of private cabins and ranches. In my humble opinion Raymond is a hamlet -- not a town. Besides I like to use the word "hamlet". It sounds so. . . quaint.
The sky was clear and the temperature mild, making it a great day to take photos.
|This ranch gate caught my eye. Look at that shocking blue sky.|
|Beyond the ranch entrance. (I wonder. . . what's behind the trees?)|
|Red berries framed by a rustic fence. Charming, no?|
|I see this cabin and imagine a roaring fire, hot chocolate and a good book.|
|I'd like to have a wagon like this one on our homestead.|
|And maybe an old truck, too.|
|Dried flowers in the snow fascinate me.|
|I love this scene. So serene.|
"Out of the south comes the storm, And out of the north the cold.
From the breath of God ice is made,
And the expanse of the waters is frozen."
Thank you for visiting. Today I'm joining these Memes:
