And So It Begins…


Here in Laramie, at 7200 feet of elevation, summer’s end comes early. Already the days grow cooler, and soon we will have our first frost and golden aspen and cottonwoods. You can already smell woodsmoke on the evening air, and folks are covering up their tomato plants or bringing in the ones growing in pots – they’ve only just had ripened fruit. We are enjoying the last days of true summer.




Fruits of the harvest – at last



A busy fellow – summer’s end doesn’t seem to  slow him down



Sunny daze – until the first frost



A fiery bowl full of flowers



But summer’s end is nearing



 And so it begins…

    on a grassy slope
    wait for the first snow fall
    promise that spring will come
    after the long winter. Fran
