Escape to a Cooler Place

My friend Rick McNight sent me these pictures of his backpacking trip to Glacier National Park that he took with two of his grown children because he knows how much I love flowers. What Rick didn't realize is that while I am known for my plant passion, I secretly long to be an opera singer. (Ironically his wife, Cathy, just recently told me that singing opera is a passion we share). So when I look at these pictures, I am inspired by the wildflower beauty, and when I look at the mountains I can hardly contain myself from breaking into full bravura... "Cliiiimb e-very mounTAIN....."

Rick should have taken Cathy and me along - we would at least have kept the bears away.

I was out in 97 degree heat yesterday, visiting a meadow garden and then the Berkshire Botanical Garden where I saw an amaging Garden Blogger's Retreat. I would have joined you in song at that cool park.

Beautiful! It's probably one of those places you have to see in person but the pictures are breathtaking. Opera? I'll stick to Jazz myself! ;)
