~ vail

We went to Vail! I'm not sure I've encountered better weather in all my life. Days 75 degrees / Nights 45 degrees... I call that perfection. It seems the cool weather followed us home and my flowers are overjoyed. They are trying to come back from the dead.
Vail has no problem in the floral department...
Flowers are blooming everywhere!
Check it out...

I'm sure I saw at least one hundred hummingbirds... 

More Vail coming up!

Isnt Vail Village amazing? We drove out this spring when we took a trip to Denver. I certainly want to go back sometime soon. The weather seems to always be perfect. Plus there are great outlet malls on the way! Flowers look gorgeous. Mine never seem to look that good.

Hi Jan,
So pretty! Rocky Mountain flowers never suffer because of the cool nights, same for the Alps, Northern Michigan and Canada in the summer.

I love seeing the nasturtiums in the window boxes, when I have tried them in containers,I only get foliage for some reason, reluctant to bloom.

Great shots of the hummingbird on the coneflowers! I have been trying all summer to photograph them, they invariably fly away once I go inside and get my camera.

Would you post on restaurants and shops that you visited as well? I love your reviews!

So pretty Jan! I lived in Vail for one year during my college years. After realizing I needed to do something more than being a ski bum.. I went back home to mom and dad and finished college :)

Thanks for sharing your lovely photos!

We were in Vail in February...and my father-in-law was there this week! Your pictures are amazing and remind me that Colorado (Vail in particular) are just as wonderful in the summer as it is in the winter!!

Did you come home with anything special? Lots of great shops there!

My favorite thing about those Colorado ski towns is how vibrant the flowers are in the Summer ... and against the blue sky. Fabulous. Thx for such great photos! Marcie
