This & That from Colorado

Life has been very busy the past month and a few things have fallen by the way such as going to the gym, blogging, getting enough sleep...What do you give up doing when you're crunched for time?
We just got back from attending our son's graduation in Colorado. If you ever go to Fort Collins, one of my favorite shops is the Perennial Gardener in Old Town.
It's actually two stores, with one side full of gardening decor and the other side general home decor. Here's our happy graduate. He's got the Colorado mountain man look going.
It was unseasonably cold during most of our visit, but we did manage a quick side trip to the Grand Stupa near Red Feather Lake just north of Fort Collins. Who would guess you'd find a Buddhist temple in Colorado?
As you can tell it was a little misty so we didn't linger, but A.J. will be working in Fort Collins so hopefully we'll be able to do more hiking in the next time we visit.

Oh, my....I love The Perennial Gardener! We get to CO about once a year to visit relatives and my standard plea is to visit Fort Collins. I also love The Cupboard....the best kitchen store in the world I think. Enjoy your return visits...what a great place for your son to live and work!
