Colorado is on Fire...

The drought we have been suffering lately has produced one of the worst forest fire seasons in Colorado.

Just this last weekend, there were eight active wildfires in the state:

High Park Fire - 83,205 acres with 45% containment
Weber Fire - 8,300 acres
Waldo Canyon Fire - 2,000 acres with 0% containment
Treasure Fire
Springer Fire
Woodland Heights Fire
State Line Fire
Little Sand Fire

Half of the nation's brave firefighters are in the state helping us control the destruction and devastation.

May and June have set a state fire record with the most homes lost.

We are nearing the end of June with the hottest and driest part of the summer ahead of us.

Rain would be a blessing.

One Dragonfly....


Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven...

Eight, Nine, Ten (2), Eleven, Twelve, Thrteen, Fourteen, Fifteen...


Fairies surrounded me for quite a long time but, in an immature sense of maturity (or so I thought), I gave most of them away to a wonderful friend of mine. But I did keep a few cherished ones... (and, by the way, my wonderful friend ALSO loves Dragonflies)...

Can there be too many?

                                                            I don't think so either.
