Oh boy, we have a problem, a big black hungry problem i call " Humphrey". Its Spring in the Colorado Rockies which means the bears are coming out of hibernation and wanting to EAT! ANYTHING! Its too early and cold for any native berries to fill their caverous bellies so its down the mountain to see what they can smell.
"yawn, i am starving!!! whats that smell? hmmmm i think i'll go down the mountain to the Rogers' buffet and see whats cookin. the people there are so nice, they leave me snacks in these big metal lunch boxes for me! oh what luck!!! a rotten birthday cake!

we always know when there is something "big" outside by the way our dogs bark. the nervousness in Pearl is the first giveaway. sure enough, there is a whopper of a mess out there this morning. for such a big animal, bears rip everything into itsy bitsy little shreds and spread it across a vast area.
its official, spring has arrived in the rockies.
artwise? its perfect weather for catching up on some interesting reading (part of my crash course in digital graphics), flip through some pretty books and zines, jot down my brainstorms in my respective journals. mornings are my favorite...i am a creative volcano of ideas -
good day everyone!

Well, the beets, carrots, brussel sprouts, kale, chard, collards and mesculun greens are officially in the soil. Sweet peas, sugar peas and green beans too. my sights are stretching out into decorating the acreage. my goal this spring is to strategically place self sufficient plants that re-seed themselves, thrive in this mountain zone and most importantly, provide the feeling that my entire property is a fairy forest Tasha Tudor would be proud of. quite the feat at 7000ft.
