The CSU (Colorado State University) flower test plots & some reading by a river

I've been driving by these flowers for some time and each time I say - 'gotta get some pictures of those'.... Today was the day.

Also on the page are some photos of the Cache La Poudre river northwest of town. It's a popular destination for rafters, kayakers, tubers, campers, hikers, fishers, and people like me who just want to sit and read to the sound of rolling waters.

Here's an overview of the test plots area. It's right on the main street in town and gets a fair bit of attention.

More information is available at the CSU website

See something you can't get at your local nursery?

Now were jumping to the Cache La Poudre river northwest of town. Book in hand - easy page flipping.

This guy came walking down the river and set up shop to show me how it's done.
