The green challenge is so appropriate for me !
I am now in Lakewood, Colorado: the Denver area is very green of natural trees and vegetation. The green effect and the continuous open blue skies are the most noticeable difference between this area and the Idaho valley where I lived.
My back protested fiercely about the thirteen hours of riding thru desert-like heath and moors, full of nothing but very short stubby sage bushes – between Boise in Idaho and Denver in Colorado. The trip was rather exhausting, but I am now on the mend and resting. My son came to take me to Colorado, with my two cats, and what boxes / stuff could fit in a truck with a trailer …
We saw very cute and elegant pronghorn antelopes in the southern Wyoming moors. Snow flurries in October slowed us down as we left Wyoming.
I am living in a cute small apartment full of overflowing packing boxes while I wait for furniture to arrive when my daughter also moves to the Denver area. Very few pieces of my furniture did fit in the trailer. Now, in the meantime, I am trying to imagine how I will creatively set up this new space. Always an interesting idea, to start over again.
As my first return post, for Cee’s challenge, I have gathered a few green color pictures. I hope in the future to be able to go out and snap some shots of where I live and of the landscape. By then only the fir trees will still be green, and there are so many here ! but never mind…
