Put a Stamp On It Blog Hop!! and Giveaway!!

Stamp on it

I'm so excited to be in the Put a Stamp On It Blog Hop!! Thanks to Madame Samm for creating another super fun Blog Hop!! Thanks to Thearica from PigtalesandQuilts for Hosting all the fun!! 

I decided to do a red, white and blue theme for my Colorado stamp mug rug with July 4th right around the corner. I put the Rocky Mountains on my stamp and chose 38 cents since Colorado is the 38th state to enter the union. I tried to show my stitching around the star but its still hard to see.
Here is my husbands mug, it goes perfect with the mug rug!!

Picked Cherries off my tree!!

My Cherry tree is a Montmorency. The cherries are the smaller tart kind perfect for pies. I know its hard to see all the cherries on the tree but the bowl I picked is only about a third of them. The bowl is a cake topper.

Now I have to pit and wash them. I want to make a jam with some. I haven't made jam before. Depending on the total amount I get this year I may freeze some.

Snake on the Bird Bath!!

I went out to water and found this little guy hanging out on the bird bath!! I usually spray out the bird bath to get it ready for the day but he seems to have altered my routine a bit.

Baby Robin on the Bird Bath!!

 The baby robin from a few weeks ago has been back in my back yard a few times but this is my first time getting a few photos. After I snapped the shot of him on the bird bath he jumped off and ran down the rail road ties and flew off.

Robins nest in my Apple Tree!!

The robin has been building the nest the last 3 mornings. Early in the morning when I was watering I was watching her fly back and forth with dried grass. I'm so excited its the first nest to be built in one of our trees!! Its so high up in the tree I won't be able to photograph the eggs. I can't wait to hear little tweets!!

More Fires in Colorado!!

This same month last year there was a pretty bad fire on the west side of Colorado Springs now there is a bad fire on the very north edge of Colorado Springs in Black Forest. Close to 400 houses have been burned down and close to 10,000 people have been evacuated. I took these photos from the top of our street. Depending on the wind the smoke changes direction. There is also a bad fire at the Royal Gorge in Canon City which is south of us but beyond the mountain so we can't get any photos of it. Its scary when its right in your community. I pray they get it under control.

Rose Bush and Peonies!!

I cut a few peonies and brought them in before the blooms were gone!!

 My rose bush beside the apple tree seems to be climbing up the tree. My apple tree didn't bloom this year I wonder if that late snow had something to do with it.

This is on the opposite side you can see the cherry tree up above behind the rosebush.
