Jon Crispin's Notebook


Posted in Animals, Architecture, Dogs, Fungi, Jon Crispin, Landscape, Nature, Plants, Seasons, Trees by joncrispin on 20/09/2014

I haven’t been posting lately, and I suspect one of the reasons is above.  I am remembering that it takes a ton of work to have a puppy in the house.

The good news is that I am spending a ton of time in the woods with her.  Any help on what this lot is?

Cris and I flew out of Boston early yesterday on our way to Denver.  Hard to believe the above shot was taken in the airport.  Looks like something out of someone’s private home in South Boston. / On our way up to the mountains we stopped in Arvada to see the house where my aunt Leora and uncle Herald lived, a place I have been visiting since a young child.

We are in Colorado for the wedding of one of Cristine’s grad students.  Laura was a favorite of ours, and the nuptials are in Beaver Creek.  It is beautiful here.  The aspens are so lovely at this time of the year.

    I believe those plants are Indian Pipe, sometimes called the ghost plant, because its usually white. Red is the more rare variant. 🙂

      Are they a fungus? Seem odd to have something that looks so young growing this late in the year. The mushrooms near our house are amazing this year. I’ll post some more soon. Thanks for the comment. jon

      Thanks Patty, 4 months old and a handful, but she is very sweet. We love her.

    Been wondering where you’ve been.
    Glad that everything is okay.
    Your “little girl” is absolutely precious, and oh yes, they are a lot of work when they’re puppies, but it is so worth it.
    Have a great time in CO,
