Yesterday afternoon, we ventured up to Central City to meet my sister and brother in-law for dinner. They bought the cutest 120 year old home on a hill in Central City last September and have done a wonderful job making it their own with lots of special touches.
The elevation at their home is about 8,200 feet above sea level. Coming from the Mile High City with an elevation of 5,280, it isn't that bad, but walking up stairs or up hill does take a toll on anyone.
This past Spring, Randy bought a few packets of wild flower seeds and decided to scatter them around the grounds. Now those little plants are in full bloom and what a wonderful sight they were.
And Finally - here is a volunteer sunflower that just starting sprouting up. Randy was patient with this one instead of suspecting it was a weed and pulling it. He let it grow and it turned into this. I'm pretty sure it would not have survived at my house.
