Leaf, Lupin and A Bee

I love the colours of these leaves in Autumn.

Cornus Controversa ‘Variegata’

We have a Lupin in flower on the last day of September.

The Clematis, Bill Mackenzie, is alive with bees all day. The yellow flowers on the wall outside the kitchen look like a constant stream of sunlight and clearly, they are very attractive to the bees.

Road Trip Day 6 – Mesa Verde, Far View

Sunday 9th September 2018

Mesa Verde was a looming green mountain and a cracking drive of hairpin bends up to the top where we were to stay for three nights. From the National Parks website: “Mesa Verde National Park was established in 1906 to preserve and interpret the archeological heritage of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from 600 to 1300 CE. Today, the park protects nearly 5,000 known archeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings. These sites are some of the most notable and best preserved in the United States.”
