See Beautiful

I don't have access to my computer or photo library so I can't put together the post that I'd hoped to do for this month's See Beautiful blog hop. But, I can share a few "See Beautiful" sights from the past two days. 

I wrote yesterday about coping with the loss of K. One of the best things for me to do is to revel in who and what I have in my life now. 

Our new Labraduo makes me smile. I've had the gift of being able to spend a lot of time with both of them in the past couple of days. We watched the sunset together one evening. R enjoyed the scents wafting on the wind from the mountains.
R is still teaching Shyla lots of things, like how to trust people she doesn't know. I saw him greet someone who Shyla has been scared of for her whole life. Because she saw R give the person a happy greeting, Shyla decided to come out of hiding to sniff the person's hand (which was a Beautiful moment!).
It is the peak of our summer wildflower season. I'll leave you with what I think is one of the most beautiful sights of all - Colorado Columbines. Entire aspen groves and hillsides are covered in them now - and that is so beautiful!

This post is part of the See Beautiful Blog Hop. Because I'm using an iPad to compose this post (while my computer is being repaired), I don't know how to link to the Blog Hop but I do know that you can find the Hop at Sugar's blog (http://www.sugarthegoldenretriever.com/2014/07/this-moment-see-beautiful-today-will-be-a-great-day/) - Thanks for hosting it, Sugar!

See Beautiful!

Watching our dogs learn from each other is one of the most profound and beautiful experiences...we are so glad that you, too, find a thrill in observing those special moments.

We saw wild columbines last week at Shenandoah but they didn't look the same - the Eastern ones must be a different species - but they are ALL beautiful.
Hope your computer gets well soon!

Hailey and Zaphod and their Lady said...

i love when my dogs teach other things (although some of the things they teach are like the demanding for love). Hope your computer is fixed soon!

Mary Hone said...

I would love to see all the beautiful columbine.

Sam said...

I always love to see flower photos on everyone's blogs - we don't have many here in the summer.

Millie and Walter said...

I love columbines too. So good to hear that R is teaching Shyla to trust. Walter is so outgoing he will go up to anybody and Millie can be a bit reserved. If Walter greets someone Millie will always join him once she sees that all is well.
