I simply cannot believe it’s already July. I think the Colorado mountain weather agrees with me. Just three days ago the temperature made it to 90F. At least it didn’t hail. We’ve had plenty of rain so the gardens here at Penfield are flourishing. 

 Have I mentioned that Ronin and I are building a skoolie? My dream has been to travel around and write books in new, interesting settings. We’re making it happen! We considered buying an RV but I’ve always been leary of them because they seem to… well, break so easily. I don’t mean the motors, although that might be true, too, I mean that they crumble in fender-benders and blow over easily in strong wind. School buses are much safer. They’re trusted to transport little kiddos. I feel much better about doing it this way. I’ll get pictures for next time. 🙂

Speaking of Lilies… The Mystery Lily is Revealed!

These lilies are a mystery from two years ago. They volunteered out of nowhere, and last year, just when they might bloom, deer ate all the buds. The Mystery Lilies are back! And just look at this gorgeous shade of dusty red!

Next time I’ll have photos from Gunnison and Crested Butte, plus some pictures of our Skoolie build. PLUS! A cover reveal for my newest Joe Ledger anthology!
