These are some of the pansies I found in Fairplay at the Nursery while we were at the Fairplay Llama Races the last weekend of July. We parked right across the road from the Nursery and at the end of the day as we were getting ready to leave I looked over and saw that she had tons of pansies in a huge array of beautiful colors so of course I had to trot on over and pick some out. I was enchanted by the different colors of purples and needed just a dash of yellow to really perk things up. I walked out on our deck several evenings ago and decided I needed to take some photos of these little beauties. Nothing is staged - I just clicked away. I almost edited out the pinecone - I didn't even realize it was in the photo until I downloaded them. Then I decided it added a bit of the Colorado flare to the photo and I left it in. I'm so glad everyone enjoyed looking at these for Wordless Wednesday! And yes, it has been cooler here. The deck is shaded by several large pine trees and nights are still plenty cool. In fact, once the sun goes down it cools off quickly here. We're at 8400 feet above sea level so the sun feels very intense during the day but the nights are wonderfully cool.
